My Philosophy

"I truly trust the birth process and believe that most women have the inherent ability to birth babies with ease.   The key is continuous emotional support that keeps the fear away during birth."


Local Businesses Catering to New Families

I want to recommend businesses that I feel may be helpful to new parents. The following are businesses run by people I know and would love to help support in their endeavors. I don't have any stake in their businesses but believe that new families could take advantage of what they have to offer.

Bee and Biscuit

Bee & Biscuit makes organic, homemade meals for families in the Bay Area. As personal chefs, we cook nutritious, healthy dishes ideal for recovery and nourishment after the birth of a baby.
