My life-calling is to help and support to moms (or moms-to-be) during the childbearing season of life.
Serving women in the childbearing season has been my calling and passion since the 1990s. I have lived out this calling as a childbirth educator (HypnoBirthing), birth and postpartum doula, lactation consultant (BA-IBCLC), Health Coach, and Clinical Hypnotherapist (C.CHt).
My passion for choices and full information to MAKE informed choices started in 1990, just a few months after the birth of my youngest son, who was born at home on Christmas Eve of 1989, with a midwife attending. The following April, she was arrested and charged with practicing medicine without a license - a felony. In working for her defence, I experienced the power and politics in medicine - and what started as a preference for natural foods and remedies and a belief in the normality of birth and breastfeeding, became a passion for the rights of individuals to choose for themselves how to build their health or treat their ailments, free of governmental or quasi-governmental control.
After 20+ years, I can truly say that my passion still burns for the work, and my clients still inspire and humble me.
