There is power that comes to women when they give birth.
They don’t ask for it, it simply invades them.
Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it.
I am a mom of delightful girls Maggie – 17, Anna – 16, Rachel – 14 and baby Joy in Heaven. With Maggie’s birth, I had a little bit of pitocin to augment my labor and she was born several hours later. Anna’s birth was undisturbed and Rachel was born by cesarean section after six weeks of bed rest due to severe complications from placenta previa. Baby Joy was sadly miscarried at 12 weeks.
I have been married to my husband, Dan, for 29 years and we love living in the historical Rocks Village neighborhood of Haverhill with our girls, a dog, 2 cats and 11 birds.
The birth of our children was the most amazing experience of my life! We took Bradley Method classes during my 1st pregnancy. Dan was the best coach as he felt prepared to help me bring our children into the world. We were able to birth our children together without fear, anxiety or pain medication, well, except for the cesarean, of course.
I am in my 12th year of teaching and love it. My passion is to empower you with the knowledge to have a healthy, low risk, informed birth so you can make wise decisions. I also strive to educate couples on what to expect should variations and complication arise and what to prepare for in the postpartum period. I look forward to helping you experience the joy of bringing a child into this world being fully aware and healthy.
