DONA Doula Training I am so proud to have completed my birth doula training through DONA, the gold standard for doula certification programs, with San Diego midwife legend, Gerri Ryan. It was a life-changing experience for me, to feel like I finally found "my people," who are passionate about helping women feel supported in their birth experiences.
Spinning Babies for Birth Workers What is Spinning Babies? It's a series of methods to assist with optimal fetal positioning. It's also what has transformed both of my own labors from a long road to a belly birth to unmedicated, physiological births. It works, and this knowledge is a necessity for birth workers to understand how to help facilitate a smooth birth in labor patterns that are puzzling. Before resorting to interventions, it's always possible to try balancing the body through positioning. With every mama, I call upon my Spinning Babies training prenatally and during the birth for comfort.
Birth Education Center Doula Finishing Series If you have found me, it's possibly because you have taken a Hypnobirthing series or other class at the Birth Education Center (BEC). I have been so lucky to have found Care and the BEC, as the additional 5 course series prepared me to support Hypnobirthing couples as well as those who want to hold their baby's unique journey as the framework for the birth experience that they are seeking.
Elimination Communication - Did you know that in 1957, 92% of babies were potty-trained by 18 months? I am a Certified Go Diaper Free Coach and hold classes and support groups for EC (elimination communication) and potty learning. By observing your baby's cues, it is possible to allow him/her to retain the innate awareness of elimination needs that he/she was born with. This awareness allows her to be free from diapers at an early age and to go through less diapers everyday until then.
