I am a leader, teacher and intuitive mother in service to women and their families. I am on a mission to take back birth. I support the different phases of life, from conscious conception to empowered birth, from healing postpartum to mindful mothering.
I have always been fascinated with birth and was fortunate to witness my aunt give birth at age 15. Though that left a lasting impression, my story really began twenty years ago when I became a personal trainer. Being one of the only women in the industry at that time, I worked with dozens of pre- and post-natal mothers. Soon after, I became a competitive boxer, stepping into the ring with many female opponents. Eventually, I traded my gloves for a yoga mat and devoted myself to deep spiritual practice.
My dream of supporting birth came to fruition when a dear friend asked me to attend her birth as a doula. I found a true passion for witnessing birth and serving women. I also began hosting women’s circles and retreats to bring mindfulness, creativity, and connection to my community.
My husband and I took eighteen months to prepare for our first baby, using this opportunity to clean up our lives and create the space to mindfully become a family. When I gave birth to my daughter, everything shifted. I had a 70 hour, three-day homebirth. It was a pivotal moment for me, one that prepared me for motherhood in ways that I still draw from today.
When I got pregnant the second time, I took more of a wild pregnancy approach, embracing a greater responsibility around my choices. I leaned into the magic and mystery of the experience and had another extraordinary homebirth. It cracked me open in a whole new way. Since then, I have been called to share the biological truths around growing, birthing, feeding and raising babies, and an even deeper mission to reclaim birth and remind women of their inherent power, wisdom, and wildness.
Whether it’s stepping into the ring, witnessing your birth or sitting in circle with you, it’s a deep honor to be with you.
