Service Area Private and small group in person or online classes MOUNTAIN VIEW CA Work Phone: (650) 400-1307 Website:


I’ve been leading private and small group Birthing From Within childbirth classes as well as yoga classes since 2002. I like utilizing story and metaphor as well as art practices and dialogue to create a comfortable practice of preparing for Birth with individuals and couples. Each person brings to the table a unique set of characteristics, wants and practices. I strive to meet them where they are, and challenge them to take steps towards a deeper understanding of birth and parenting for themselves. Over the years, I’ve led small group classes at centers, and in peoples homes, I also lead online classes and private classes online or in home.
