Maria LuthiEmporia, Kansas About Me
I live rurally with my husband and two girls near the Flint Hills on a little farm where we enjoy hunting, fishing, gardening, and chickens. We are in close proximity to Burlington and Emporia, KS but enjoy the relative seclusion of the country!
I started on the path to natural birth when I was pregnant with my first child and stumbled upon Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth by the famous midwife, Ina May Gaskin, simply because it was one of the only books the local library had about birth! I knew next to nothing about childbirth but the birth stories in the book fascinated me and sparked my husband’s interest as well. Three years and two unmedicated, natural hospital births later, we were hooked and I became certified as a Birth Boot Camp Instructor in the spring of 2017 so I could share with others how they can have a birth they enjoy and want to celebrate!
I’m excited to meet you and be a part of your journey! Childbirth does not have to be miserable or scary! In contrast, it can be amazing, especially with some education and support, which you are already on the road to securing if you’re reading this! I look forward to sharing this life experience with you!
