Birth classes in Carmel and Salinas, California
Name: Cori Gentry Email: email@example.com Website: www.corigentry.com Through family birth stories, I grew up believing that natural birth was normal. After studying Early Childhood Education at Cal State Monterey Bay I became a childcare provider and was surprised by how common cesareans and epidurals were among my clients. I married the punk rocker of my dreams in 2007 and on Valentines Day 2009 we discovered we were pregnant. When I could not find a local comprehensive natural childbirth class, I knew I would someday teach one. I made that dream a reality with Birth Boot Camp in 2012. My 4 births have been very different: I've birthed after 42 weeks, at 3 different local hospitals and at home, with doctors and midwives, medicated and natural. Advocating for options and safety in childbirth is something I live daily. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Birth Network of Monterey County, I am a Co-Leader of the International Cesarean Awareness Networks (ICAN) of Monterey County, and am Co-Coordinator for ImprovingBirth.org Monterey County. I love sharing my passion and knowledge with parents who want to have an amazing birth! I teach childbirth classes in Carmel and Salinas, California.
Birth Classes in Petaluma, California
Name: Julia Myers
I grew up in a family of seven children and have always been surrounded by mothers and babies. This upbringing instilled in me a love of everything connected to motherhood. After getting married and considering a family of my own, I dove into research about all things pregnancy and birth. While pregnant with my first child, my husband and I took a birth class and had a beautiful natural birth that sparked an even deeper passion into the natural birth world. I find an overwhelming amount of joy in educating parents about healthy pregnancies, natural birth, and intuitive parenting. I am currently in the process of becoming a certified doula with a long term goal of becoming a home birth midwife. I teach childbirth classes in Petaluma, California.
Birth Classes in San Clemente, CaliforniaName: Abby Illenberger Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.homegrownbirth.com Since the birth of my first child, I have had a passion for all things pregnancy and childbirth. Despite finding out I was pregnant after having just moved to San Clemente from Redondo Beach via Chicago, I had the good fortune of meeting up with a doula, midwife and natural childbirth class that all created an essential support team for what became an incredibly empowering event in my life. During my second pregnancy, I decided I wanted to support other pregnant women and their families the way I had so lovingly been supported. It was then that I became a natural childbirth educator. Not wanting to stop there, I have since become a labor support doula and enjoy helping women birth in the manner that makes sense to them. Along with natural childbirth education and doula work, I am passionate about health, fitness, and nutrition. I am so fortunate to work with my husband (owner of CrossFit No Boundaries) as the coordinator and coach of our World’s Best Boot Camp Orange County program which has an emphasis on helping pregnant/postpartum moms stay low risk and feel amazing as well as being a CrossFit Kids certified trainer. I encourage anyone who is reading this to contact me with any questions regarding my classes or any pregnancy related concerns. I teach childbirth classes in San Clemente, California.
Birth Classes in San Diego, CaliforniaName: Debbe Cannone Email: email@example.com Website: www.DoulaDebbeBirthingBasics.com I am a dedicated DONA and toLabor trained birth doula who is also the mother of three boys. I am a certified lactation educator and childbirth educator as well. I have personally experienced both a medicated birth with an epidural and forceps delivery as well as two beautiful unmedicated births. In my role as a birth doula I have attended over 6o births and witnessed many different types of birth. These birth experiences sparked a passion in me for supporting mothers and their partners through this blessed and transformative period in their lives. Providing parents with the best evidence-based information on labour, birth, and breastfeeding, in addition to empowering parents to make their own decisions about all things concerning the birth of their baby, is my passion and I believe it’s the strongest foundation for achieving an amazing natural birth experience. You will always remember the birth of your baby...I’m committed to preparing you and your partner for a birth you will never want to forget! I teach birth classes in San Diego, California.
