Rethink Birth:

Holistic Resources for Mindful Pregnancy & Birth

+ for parents, doulas, & birth professionals +

After having my 5th baby at home in 2011,
I created my own childbirth education materials and started offering them in womens’ circles and online.

These evolved into the products you’ll find at!

I’ve poured my whole heart into creating soul-honoring, holistic tools like these.
These unique, gentle, and mindful resources will guide you toward creating the calm and confident birth experience you desire!

Some say that a mother in labor travels beyond the stars to collect baby’s spirit,
and returns forever changed.

As a holistic childbirth educator and doula, I specialize in helping you to (re)awaken your intuition and release your fears, so you feel free to labor and birth with confidence – even if things don’t go as planned!

Birth is a deeply transformative process, and it’s emotional as much as physical.

In my materials, I use art, psychology, and evidence-based practices to help you rethink the often unconscious,
unhelpful beliefs we tend to carry about birth, parenting, and ourselves.

Birth can be a deep and powerful catalyst for inner healing…
– if we are open to receiving that experience as a gift –
in all its messy, unpredictable fullness.

Help! I feel like I don’t have access to the birthing options I want!

That’s so frustrating. I’m sorry to hear that.
I was in the same boat when I had my own babies.

BUT I still wanted to find ways to experience joy during my birth…even if it didn’t happen exactly the way I envisioned. My products help you to reflect deeply on what you really want, and how you can BOTH create the change you desire, and shift your perspective to feel more at peace with your birth – however it unfolds.


Giving birth is not akin to being ill, and it shouldn’t be treated like a disease.


I became a mother at age 18, and again at 21. By the time I was 26, I’d survived a horrible ordeal of birth trauma at the hands of medical professionals, during the birth of my 3rd child. (You can read their birth stories on my blog.)

Over the next five years, I became a birth doula so that I might uplift the experience of other women, and to provide them with the type of supportive, intimate, and mindful birth experience that I had longed for.

Finally, after I had FANTASTIC births with my last two babies, I realized that I MUST start writing, creating and sharing the body of knowledge and awareness I’d cultivated with the world.

Before I knew it. I’d created an entire childbirth education curriculum, hours of video content, and most notably, the Releasing Your Fears eKit and Conscious Pregnancy Workbook.


Now, I recognize that my truest passion lies in
the empowerment and trust of freebirth.
