Education for midwives, birth professionals, families, and the public has long been a passion and integral part of my life. Awareness of a full spectrum of possibilities empowers us to make the best decisions for ourselves, our clients, and our families. Knowledge is power.
In continuing the legacy of teaching, I honor and offer gratitude to all my teachers over the years who helped me expand my own mind and hone my own skills to better serve my community. May these offerings expand your own thinking and understanding of possibilities in the realms of reproduction, health, community, and empowerment.
