When I became pregnant with my first child my life changed forever. It was revealed to me like a lightning strike (seriously) that I needed to work with the miracle of birth. Since then (nursing degree and several specialty certifications later), I have advocated for policy and practice change in the hospital to support physiologic, peaceful birth. I research, propose, lecture, develop educational modules and present to leadership, doctors, nurses... whoever will listen to me! This is why I consider myself an activist.
The combination of my experience watching thousands of women give birth; noticing what worked and what didn't work so well, hours of research and study in physiologic birth; combined with my own mindfulness practice which has changed my life profoundly, has prompted me to develop something different for pregnant women and families. This journey has developed into a passion: researching the evidence and science behind the contemplative practices and how they support fetal growth, bonding, parenting and generally speaking a more peaceful world.
