childbirth preparation & recovery

Childbirth can be a wonderful event. However, not all women have the birth experience they want. Many women come away from the birth of a child with feelings of disappointment and disillusionment about the event itself. For some women, childbirth can be emotionally or physically traumatic. Unresolved negative feelings about a birth can color a woman's expectations for future deliveries, creating fear and stress. Using my experience in the treatment of both trauma and pain, I help women heal the emotional pain of previous births and prepare psychologically for a new, more positive birth experience.


Just as you spend time and energy taking care of your body during pregnancy, you are entitled to an equal level of care for your mental and emotional well-being. A better birth is possible!
