I hope to help navigate you on this journey into parenthood. My classes focus on informed birth choices so you can have the confidence to give birth your way. My goal is to teach you natural childbirth techniques, so you know that birth is a normal process in every woman's life cycle. Our bodies were designed just fine to give birth to our babies. Through my classes, I help you see your body is completely capable of having a baby and that birth is not scary but in fact beautiful.
The beginning of your journey is pregnancy. My classes will also discuss the changes into parenthood. I discuss issues that are important to today's parents. My goal is for you to become comfortable in your parenting instincts. I teach about breastfeeding as well because it is the perfect beginning for your child.
In classes you’ll lean
Classes are small with plenty of individual attention. Videos, music, and healthy snacks often accompany my classes which focus on overall education and relaxation. Classes begin at 6:30 and are approximately 2 1/2 hours. Classes are held in Fontana, CA near the 15 and 210 freeways. Your class fee is $285 which includes a workbook, 2 resource books, research handouts, and unlimited email and phone contact.
In the near future, I'll be offering a breastfeeding course and baby wearing course.
I hold a two night series on everything breastfeeding. I cover positions, current research, practical tips, dispelling myths, and troubleshooting. I encourage you to bring your birth partner as well. Your companion is really a vital part in your success as a breastfeeding mom.
We will address basic baby care like bathing, babywearing, diapers, and current parenting issues. If you would like more information, give me a call or email me. The cost for the 2 night course is $45.
***NEW*** Breast Feeding Class and infant care. We'll cover importance of breastfeeding, positions, returning to work, health, and including the partner. Basic newborn care and babywearing will also be covered. Please email me for more details. Class will be 2 evenings for a total of 4 hours of instruction. Cost is $45 per couple.

I do offer doula services on a limited schedule. My clients for classes come first. I try my best to keep 1-2 mothers due in a month. I feel an extra support person is a great addition to any birth and will help the mother and her partner feel more at ease during the labor.
During labor, I help you choose positions, stay motivated, and answer your questions. I do not perform any medical services (i.e. vaginal exams, blood pressure, etc.). In addition, I do not make any medical decisions for you.
I am not only supporting the birthing mother in her journey, but the entire family and the mother's support system.
My doula services include but not limited to:
1 to 2 prenatal visits
massage during labor
unlimited phone, text, and/or email contact during pregnancy and early labor
creating a positive and comfortable environment at the hospital
using various comfort techniques
walking with you
supporting you and your decisions
1 or 2 postnatal visits at your home
If you would like to use me as your doula, please contact me early as spaces fill quickly for this service.
