Work With Me

I teach virtually in one-on-one coaching sessions, or you can take an online class that I co-created and co-teach, with the option to upgrade to one-on-one coaching sessions. See more below.

Find me on your iPhone or iPad through the Soshe app

This is a great option if you are looking for a full birth class that walks you through everything you need to know, offers accountability in practicing coping skills, and gives you access to evidence based support at your fingertips.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can download Soshe and take the birth class I co-designed and co-teach with the amazing Naima Beckles. (Web and Android versions of the class will be available in 2022.) The full class runs $300, and is currently on sale for $99. The full class + coaching (5 sessions) is currently $499.

One-on-One Birth Prep Coaching

Who is Birth Prep Coaching for? It’s for people who are . . .

  • Pre-pregnant and want hands on help with planning your ultimate birth experience (which involves healthful choices before and during early pregnancy)
  • Newly pregnant and exploring your birth options (OB or midwife? Hospital or Home?)
  • Pregnant again and want a better experience than last time (VBAC, unnecessary interventions, etc.)
  • Running out of time/close to due date: don’t have time for a full childbirth class (you had every intention but time just got away from you!)
  • Working on a birth plan: Need a thorough discussion about your options. What is necessary to include, what’s not. How to get staff to take it seriously, Which things can be decided on later, etc.
  • Need comfort measures/coping techniques as you are heading into your birth experience (tried and true techniques used by birth pros)
  • Need a better understanding of any aspect of labor, birth and postpartum (from basic birth fundamentals to “things they don’t tell you”)
  • Need a refresher: it’s been a while!
  • in a unique situation: You have a unique condition or situation surrounding your expected birth that you’d like some support in navigating.
  • have a birth partner/support person who needs guidance on how to advocate for the birthing person (building bridges with hospital staff while being their eyes and ears).
All you need is a reliable internet connection and an internet-connected device.
