Supporting Mamas & Their Families in the Birthing of Their Babies, Their Families, Themselves & New Journeys, Intuitively & Heart-Centered, Every Step of the Way!
Our birth philosophy is that birth is a natural, normal, family-centered, awe-inspiring and amazing adventure that a woman’s body innately knows how to navigate. It is a journey through time that allows women to choose their own paths and create their own life-changing adventure through evidence-based childbirth education and support. As a mama, an educator, a meditator, coach and most of all champion of birth, my journey is to empower you to give birth to your babies, new families and new adventures with a calm, empowered, heart-centered and intuitive confidence. A confidence that will impact not only you and your babies but empower generations of women, families and communities to come. The EmpowerHeart Birthing Family is a new kind of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum education, support and coaching collective that combines evidence-based childbirth education based on Lamaze’s 6 Healthy Birth Practices with powerful postpartum, mama and family support and coaching that supports the wholeness of motherhood and your new family. Many families are educated and supported through pregnancy and birth but often feel the support drop off after bringing baby home. I am passionate about this postpartum period and ensuring you have all you need to make your
transition as a new family. Whether you are just starting your family journey, getting ready to birth your baby, have just given birth or it’s been a year or more since birth, the EmpowerHeart Birthing Community offers resources, tips, monthly education class series that include postpartum and breastfeeding basics education and coaching where you and your partner will work together to identify your own birth philosophy and pinpoint the many tools, healthcare and community support you may need. You may want to join the The Intuitive Family Membership as an ongoing resource and support community. The Intuitive Family Membership is a monthly membership community that provides a mama collective, masterclasses and topic experts on pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and parenting topics such as birth and postpartum doulas, feeding your baby, postpartum mental health, pregnancy and postpartum chiropractic care, essential oils, dynamic meditation, pelvic care and why it’s important, baby care and sleep essentials and numerous parenting topics, just to name a few. So come on in, get calm and see what speaks to you on your birthing journey! I am honored you are here and look forward to helping you, no matter where you are at on your path!

Labor and birth require physical and mental planning. Sometimes, moms and partners, you may find yourself too busy or too late in your pregnancy to take a longer in-depth childbirth education class (life happens and we totally understand!). This is why EmpowerHeart Birthing has partnered with Lamaze to offer additional online classes for parents with busy schedules or parents who just want to take ALL the classes and soak up every bit of baby and family knowledge they can! If you are unable to to join our monthly EmpowerHeart Birthing Childbirth Education class or our Intuitive Family Membership, this is a great option for you and your partner!
As a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, I'm honored to be on this birth journey with you! Lamaze childbirth education and informed decision making are important first steps that will guide you not only through childbirth but also through parenthood and on your individual life journey. I'm here to serve you on this amazing path. Sometimes, figuring out where to start on your pregnancy journey, can be confusing. Lamaze's 6 Healthy Birth Practices and Decision Guides are a great place to begin!
Your baby’s birth story, the story of your becoming a mother, a parent and family are important and life changing. These are the stories you will be reliving and retelling to yourself, your loved ones and your children for decades to come. You will draw energy and confidence from these stories as you go on this amazing adventure of parenthood.
It is because of my own birth stories, both my own and my children’s that I am passionate about educating you and your family to have the safest and healthiest birth, no matter how your baby is birthed! It is also why I am equally as passionate about providing the postpartum support that so many moms, partners and families search for after bringing baby home.
I am excited and honored to serve you as your birth guide! Navigating pregnancy, birth and postpartum can be exciting, challenging and can sometimes bring us to our knees. Sometimes, all of these occur at the same time! Certainly we find all of these emotions happening now as we navigate these new times in which we are living. It is especially important that you and your partner are educated in evidence-based childbirth and postpartum education and have access to loving support and coaching as you move through the transition of everything that it means to become a family!
I’m amazed everyday how the strength of positive, confident birth experiences coupled with loving support continue to positively impact and shape every step of the motherhood and family journey. It is the ray of calm and light in this challenging new world! My approach to pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum education is based on everything I am, I know and have learned through my own Lamaze birth experiences, Lamaze Childbirth Educator Certification and my own amazing, humbling and sometimes complicated mom adventure! I’m not only a Lamaze baby myself from the 70’s but I gave birth to all three of my children using Lamaze’s six, safe and healthy birth practices. These practices and education not only helped me to navigate three VERY different birth experiences but proved vital in the postpartum time that followed. I knew it was my purpose to help mamas and their families have all of the support needed in the birth of their baby. Lamaze’s core fundamentals teach parents how to safely and healthily birth their babies and how to navigate the many peaks and valleys that occur in the transition of becoming a family.
In each monthly group or private class series’ you and your partner will learn everything about labor and birth, breastfeeding basics, creating your healthcare support team, making informed decisions on your’s and your baby’s care throughout pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Although you may be pregnant for 9 months, you will be in the sacred postpartum time for longer and in some ways need more support. Many families are educated and supported through pregnancy and birth but often feel the support drop off after bringing baby home. I am passionate about this postpartum period and ensuring you have all of the support you need to make your transition as a new family. All of my childbirth education class series include a postpartum education class where you and your partner will work together to pinpoint the many tools, healthcare and community support you may need.
Right now, we are going through the challenging times and want you to know that you are supported during this happy and joyful time of birthing your baby and new family. Focusing on new life is so important no matter what times we are going through, it keeps us hopeful for the promise of new beginnings. Thank you for including me in your new beginning!
