Our bodies are sacred, powerful, and wise

Pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period make up a powerful rite of passage, a period of rapid growth and change, and also an especially tender time with uniquely intense needs for witnessing, nourishment, and connection.

When a mother feels relaxed and heard, honored and supported, true possibilities emerge for sweetness and joy, deep empowerment, and profound transformation. 

This is what every woman deserves and why I strive to offer a spacious, attentive, and curious listening presence; practical guidance and accessible opportunities for enhancing well-being; plenty of resources for making informed choices free from pressure; and expertise grounded in the understanding of pregnancy & birth, breastfeeding and healing processes as normal, natural, safe, and beneficial.

Because your pregnancy, birth, and baby moon should be joyful, empowering, and transformative!
