I’ve spent the last 30 years traveling the world as a childbirth educator, Doula, and Doula instructor.
Now I want to share with you all the essential knowledge that I’ve picked up along the way – my secrets, my tools, and the inspiration for my work – right in the comfort of your own home!
After my son’s birth, I started to reflect upon my experience in birth and began to question why so many people accept our broken system as it was and go along with the assembly line of generic interventions, wanting to trust the process yet feeling inside that something was wrong with it.
I was inspired to provide relief to this issue, and so I became a childbirth educator. My role as a classroom educator evolved, and soon families began to invite me to attend their births.
I quickly learned that I had become a Doula, and was part of the beginnings of the Doula movement. I became one of the first DONA approved birth and postpartum Doula trainers teaching parents, Doulas, midwives, doctors and nurses around the world.
I have seen firsthand how current practices in birth often create pain when there are so many simple ways to reduce pain, making natural birth a much more feasible option, which is why the work I do as chair of the International MotherBaby Childbirth Organization and co-chair of the International Childbirth Initiative: 12 Steps to Safe and Respectful MotherBaby-Family Maternity Care is so important to me.
I have learned that by taking away the power of birth, and by putting women in beds and hospital gowns, stripping away their ability to move, dance, and find joy in childbirth we have not only made birth more difficult, and more painful, but sadly we are missing out on an amazing opportunity to birth ourselves and our babies with respect, dignity, love, pleasure, and creating a heightened physical and emotional experience – one that I call Orgasmic!
Statistics have shown that we have pushed the limits of what technology can do for us, and now we know the many short and long-term consequences for Mother-Baby and Family when we use drugs and surgery when they are not needed.
It’s my greatest desire to spread this knowledge by making it more accessible, and that’s why I created Comprehensive Bliss: Transform Pain to Power!
I am here to give you everything you need to guide your clients to give birth in any setting or situation with more love, dignity, and respect.
The world needs you!
With sincere love and pleasure,
