Specialty/Services

My goal, as a Bradley Method instructor, is to help each couple achieve a joyous, unmedicated, low-intervention birth. I do not practice medicine, but teach about normal labor and birth and issues of importance to the pregnant woman. My desire is to help each couple find its own best way to give birth in the safest, most natural way possible for them. It is the couple''s responsibility to train and educate themselves to achieve the goals they set.

Women''s Health Philosophy

One of my goals as a childbirth educator is to help women gain faith in themselves and their bodies. I would like women to give their babies the best start possible, beginning before conception, and continue to pursue good health for themselves and their babies.

I am discouraged by the negative attitude about childbirth by so many women and their desire to spread that negativity to pregnant women. I hope to help women achieve the childbirth experience they desire as well as help them realize and have faith in their own strength.
