I am passionate about educating women on the possibilities of gentle & calm birth choices in EVERY birth experience. Women need to know they have options and choices in birth. Gentle and calm looks different for every woman and can be present in medicated and unmedicated, vaginal or cesarean, blocked or unblocked births.
As a Birth Professional, I am located in the Central Ohio area. I have helped HypnoBirthing® families since 2006 and have taught over 200 couples this amazing childbirth education program. I also am certified with the HypnoBirthing® Institute to offer Fertility Sessions and Infant Massage Classes. In addition to HypnoBirthing® I also am a Certified Birth Doula through DONA International, Certified Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, and Yoga Nidra Facilitator focused on maternal services. I also took the Advanced Childbirth Education classes through ICEA and offer traditional Childbirth Classes. I offer pregnancy coaching sessions to families, too.
My husband and I live in Fairfield County with our two daughters and two dogs. We have one angel son, Nikolas (Niko) who truly inspired this business and the work I do. I am honored and blessed to do this life work with amazing families. Each and every mother I have worked with has touched me in some way. I am grateful to those families who allowed me to be a witness to the transformation of their pregnancy and birth experiences. Sacred Beginning does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status. I fully support the LBGTQ community.
