When I became pregnant with my son Griffin in 2002 I realized I had found my life’s calling. I became passionate about the field of childbirth and wanted to help families have the best birth experience possible.
I have been empowering and supporting families as an educator and doula since 2006. Becoming a Hypnobabies Childbirth Education Instructor in 2008 has been one of my most rewarding achievements. My background also includes lactation education, prenatal yoga training and birth advocacy training. I have had the privilege of attending over 250 births as a doula and midwifery assistant/student, both in and out of the hospital. Educating and supporting families is my deepest passion, my goal is to enrich the lives of every family I work with through knowledge, awareness and acceptance! I offer:
Hypnobabies Childbirth Education classes – Los Alamitos/Long Beach area, as well as private classes in and around the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. Hypnobabies® is a complete childbirth preparation course that teaches the same medical hypnosis techniques used by people who undergo surgery with hypnosis as their only anesthesia. Couples will learn about the stages of birth, prenatal nutrition and exercises, how to stay healthy and low risk, risks, benefits and alternatives for common procedures; getting informed consent, creating a birth plan, powerful “Eyes Open” childbirth hypnosis and much more. Mothers are awake and aware, and can move about freely, still very relaxed, still very deeply in hypnosis, and still completely comfortable while giving birth. One of the most helpful aspects of Hypnobabies classes is our Fear Clearing sessions. All expectant mothers (and dads) naturally enjoy letting go of fears and concerns, allowing them to anticipate the birth of their babies with joy and confidence.
