My first doula training was 10 years ago through DONA, and it ignited my passion for birth and the personal transformation going from pregnancy to parenthood. I’ve since had a couple babies myself and have taken many certifications that have created diversity in how I approach birth work. I love blending the science and the energetics for a holistic, personalized experience. I work with families throughout the childbearing continuum, from fertility through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. My work as a Transformational Coach, Kundalini Dance facilitator, and author supports my work with families navigating the mental, emotional, physical and energetic shifts that come with adding a new baby to your family. Through our meetings I will listen to your desires for your birth and postpartum experience so I can hold and amplify that vision with you. I provide education to you and your partner on what to expect, options available, how to navigate the medical system and advocate for yourself, as well as providing practical, hands on comfort measures and mindset coaching. I approach my work with a depth that birth inherently brings forth, but I do it with a lot of laughs and lightness. My wish is for all families to look back on their experience of pregnancy and birth and feel empowered and equipped in trusting their innate gifts as parents, no matter how their birth story unfolds. I live with my beloved of 18 years and our twin toddlers. You’ll find us tromping around forests with our pup and having dance parties as much as we can. Hope to have tea and connect with you soon!
Classes must have sufficient registration to run. Rarely, we need to cancel a class due to lack of registration. If that should happen, we will find another class for you, schedule a private class, or return your full registration, as you prefer. Full payment for classes should be received within one month of the class, to ensure your registration. Should you need to cancel for medical reasons anytime prior to the start of class, you can request to switch your class to a one on one online session. If you have given birth before the start of the class, a refund will be given minus a $100 non-refundable deposit. Please give us as much notice as possible so we can fill the spot. For all other cancellation reasons, up to 3 weeks before the class start date, a 50% refund will be issued. No refunds are available 3 weeks before the class starts and for the duration of the class. If you need to miss a single class, you can ask your mentor if you can come early or stay late to help set-up or clean-up during another time and get the low-down on what you missed. Thank you for joining our prenatal class with Dancing Star Birth.
