     I became passionate about childbirth education after giving birth to my first child.  I was fortunate to have taken a class that prepared me to have a physiologically natural birth in a hospital that left me feeling confident and empowered.  It was a peak experience for me.  I wanted every woman to feel as satisfied as I was in childbirth.  I wanted to be a voice of positivity about birth so I became certified as a childbirth instructor.

     I choose to teach Birth Boot Camp Classes because they are designed to prepare you physically, mentally, and emotionally for a safe and satisfying birth. In-person group classes are held in my home in Mount Airy, MD.  I teach private classes as well.  You can find more details about my classes below!
