Biography

I have worked in family support and as an educator since 2013, but discovered Birthing from Within when I was pregnant in 2016. This experience brought me back full circle to a long lost passion for supporting birthing people and their families. In 2018, I knew I could not ignore this call any longer, and began the process of becoming a Trained Birthing from Within Childbirth Educator.

I am a birth worker of color and bring practices rooted in social justice to the childbirth and parenting classes I facilitate. My approach is inclusive and culturally responsive, where all families can explore their expectations and prepare for the uncertainties surrounding childbirth, as well as parenthood. I aim to nurture confidence in the families I work with and help each individual draw upon their knowledge and resilience already living within.

I am also trauma-informed and have training and education in birth trauma, perinatal mental health, and trauma responsive play. I am trained in Birth Story Listening and I am a Postpartum Peer Support Specialist where I provide warm, compassionate support and resources to vulnerable families in the postpartum period.
