Talk about pregnancy, birth & baby

20


20 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will answer your questions about what it was like for me to be pregnant, give birth naturally, and have a newborn! When I was pregnant, I had very few close friends who had had children and I wasn't always sure who to turn to for questions on pregnancy, natural childbirth, birthing without fear, believing in my body and myself, and hearing positive pregnancy/birth/parenting stories. I want to be a resource for the women who are trying to get pregnant, expecting a baby, are curious (or even scared!) about the birthing experience, or have no idea what it's like to have a newborn baby. I'll talk about doulas, birth partners, birth plans, trusting your body, and variations of normal. I'll be honest but not sensationalistic. What you see on TV is not what you get in pregnancy and childbirth and parenting! If you want to hear about another mama's experience, let's chat! We can meet up locally or Skype for 25 minutes and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea together.

Training & Qualifications


I am a mother of one, my daughter who was born in May 2016. In 2015, I experienced an ectopic pregnancy followed by a healthy pregnancy. I used Hypnobirthing to have a natural, intervention-free/drug-free birth with my midwife in a hospital setting. I have been successfully breastfeeding since May 2016 while working out of the home part time. I'm a strong advocate for fear-free birth, gentle parenting and breastfeeding. In addition to my personal experiences, I am happy to share book recommendations, online support groups, and other resources for expecting and new mothers.

Availability & Preferences


Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons and evenings

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Sandra Connors

I am a nationally-certified speech-language pathologist (master's degree) with a bachelor's degree in Spanish. I have lived abroad in Spain and Ecuador and love to travel. When I first stayed with a f...amily in Spain, I was 15 years old and I fell in love with the culture. To this day I love tapas, cafe con leche, Spanish wine, and eating grapes on New Year's Eve. I am an amateur photographer with 8 years of experience who enjoys cooking at home, reading, yoga, Argentine tango, and gentle parenting. I recently had a baby (May 2016) and when I'm not with my daughter I currently work part-time as a preschool speech therapist. I also have experience working with stroke and TBI survivors. I believe in the power of volunteering in our communities. I am a former volunteer with Retreat & Refresh Stroke Camp and 11th Hour Volunteer with The Denver Hospice. Since relocating, I am now a volunteer with the Cooking Matters program in southeast Michigan, which provides cooking and nutrition education to low-income families. At home I have two dogs, a noisy pomeranian and an antisocial chihuahua. My awesome husband works in hospitality and taught me everything I know about Italian wine and sushi. I'm an introvert, a feminist, and a fan of Harry Potter. If I could invite anyone to a dinner party, it would be Shankar Vedantam or Amanda Palmer. I have a black thumb and plants shrivel near instantaneously in my care, a fact that truly embarrasses me. show more
