BBC Dual Certified Instructor and Doula TrainerKalispell, Whitefish, Columbia Falls, Big Fork, & the Flathead Valley, MontanaAbout Me
Birth Boot Camp is an evidenced-based, 10-week comprehensive childbirth preparation program that helps educate pregnant couples on how nutrition, fitness, choice of care provider, and the location of delivery can help or hinder the birth they want to achieve. While Birth Boot Camp is expertly designed to help couples attain a natural childbirth, the thorough curriculum will also help you be prepared when changes to your desired birth plan may need to occur.
In our 10 weeks together, you will gain confidence for managing childbirth and develop a deeper understanding of how labor is a shared experience in which your baby is an active participant. We will also discuss some of the best-kept secrets to achieving a natural birth (hello, chiropractors & doulas!) and, at series' end, you will have practical tools for how to not only survive but THRIVE during those early weeks of babyhood and your entire postpartum period.
I am a homeschooling mother of 2 sons and a daughter and have a deep passion for sharing the blessings and benefits of natural childbirth, baby-wearing, co-sleeping, and breastfeeding.
My first son's birth at a Southern California hospital in 2003 was quite eventful! The experience left me desiring a gentler approach to my next birth (should I ever have the opportunity) and I began to seek out a care provider who would trust my body's ability to birth as it needed to. When I became pregnant with my daughter (5 years later), I opted for a home waterbirth with a licensed midwife. I had such a great experience that in 2011, I gave birth to my 2nd son at home and in the water once again.
I have learned so much from each of my children's births and am a huge advocate for helping parents enter pregnancy and childbirth empowered and informed, regardless of where they choose to have their baby. I have unique experience with pregnancy/birth after miscarriage and also with pumping & milk-sharing. Over the past decade, I have loved helping families find what works for them and their family's individual needs for all things pregnancy & birth related and I was thrilled when my passion led me to certification as a Birth Boot Camp Instructor.
I look forward to talking with you about how you can have an amazing birth! My Class Schedule
