I am a Bay Area native, wife to my extremely supportive husband and mother to my four wonderful children. The journey through fertility, pregnancy, birth and motherhood has fascinated me for many years. My experience as a DONA trained and certified Birth Doula and my own extremely varied birth experiences allow me to offer an understanding of how birthing parents might be feeling and what they might want in many different situations. I came to find the HypnoBirthing method during my second pregnancy and I was able to use the method to great results. After that beautiful natural birth and the subsequent birth of my oldest son at home, I decided to share this method so that other expectant families could enjoy similar positive birth experiences. Even experiencing a difficult homebirth transfer during my youngest son’s recent birth, HypnoBirthing was of the utmost help in remaining calm, making educated decisions and coping with a long labor.
I am very passionate about all things birth and family. I offer a personal touch to my teaching and I love to work closely with expecting couples, hearing their stories and helping both partners to achieve their ideal birth as well as helping them to navigate their journey towards becoming a family. I live in San Jose and teach HypnoBirthing and Childbirth education in several locations in the South Bay Area and Peninsula as well as privately. I am also a certified Hypnotherapist and specialize in working with expectant mothers and families as well as couples walking the path of infertility. My office is conveniently located at the offices of the South Bay Homebirth Collective in the Rose Garden area of San Jose/Santa Clara.
I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your incredible Journey
through Pregnancy and Birth.
