I have experienced both sides of birth. I had my now 12-year old daughter in a military hospital with an epidural and I had my now 4-year old son unmedicated in a birthing center with a midwife and doula. The level of preparedness was night and day which made all the difference. I took HypnoBirthing classes during my pregnancy with my son and credit the outcome of this birth to the Mongan Method. I was so empowered by the experience I had that I immediately wanted to help other women achieve their perfect birth so I became a Birth Doula and HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator.
Not only am I passionate and grateful for the work I get to do, being the owner of this company also gives me the flexibility to be home with my kids so much more than I did when I was working part-time in an office job. It's a win-win!
About a year later, I decided to jump into the world of sleep consulting. I would have benefited from help with this with my children and wanted to help other families have successful sleep with their children. I've seen so many new families that needed support in this area and helping them with this seemed like a natural addition to my services.

I joined West Tenth in March of 2022. I love that the app gives an opportunity for home-based businesses to have a "store front". It's an incredible way to support local, small businesses you may have never discovered right in your community!
