Name: Celeste Kalcich
Celeste has been a natural birth, breastfeeding, and baby wearing enthusiast since 2009. She gave birth to her first daughter in 2008 in a hospital with many interventions. Feeling she had missed a vital rite of passage of womanhood, she vowed to never give birth uninformed again. After reading every possible book, research paper, and article about birth she could, she became passionate about birth and child-rearing the way nature intended. In 2010, she gave birth to her son in the comfort of her own home. Hers second daughter was also born at home in February of 2013. She has been breastfeeding collectively for 3.5 years and still counting! Celeste eagerly assists many friends and family members in achieving natural births (one of which occurred in her home), breastfeeding, and creating their own custom baby carriers. She ardently believes that women are endowed with the ability to birth and nurture their children when they have adequate support and information- all of which can be provided through Birth Boot Camp classes!
