A message from Cindy, your Evidence Based Birth® Instructor:

"I have had four births, and each of my births were unique. My first son was a late term preemie, coming at 35 weeks, five days gestation, and was in the NICU a few days.  I had taken classes and prepared best I could- but I honestly felt steamrolled by his birth and there were many things that went in ways I could not have predicted.  I knew I wanted better for my future births, so I started taking classes and learning and along the way I fell madly in love with the idea of becoming a birth professional.  I wanted to help folks have what I wished I did during that first birth- evidence based information so I could make the most informed decisions for myself and my babies possible.  

I went on to have three more births, one accidental unassisted, and two planned homebirths with midwifery care, including one waterbirth.  Having such varied experiences gives me unique perspective and enriches the instruction and doula services I offer.  

Over the past decade I've joyously worked with hundreds of birthing and lactating families.  I'm asked to speak at conferences across the country and have been chosen to become a Doula trainer with two top doula training organizations.  I am also one of the original folks to become an Evidence Based Birth Instructor, and was honored to be part of the Advisory Team who helped make these Childbirth Classes a reality. Working as a birth professional who helps families and other birth and lactation professionals is my passion, eclipsed only by my love of being a parent myself.    

I would be honored to work with you along your path to and through parenthood. To help you form your toolbox of comfort techniques, evidence you can rely on, and to celebrate with you as you add a little person to your family."  

Listen to what some of the first students of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class have had to say: 

“This class is a total gamechanger for us. I’d heard negative stories…I was scared and very on edge. Then once we started taking the class, and when we learned about interventions that I was apprehensive about… It brought us together in that [my partner] understood birth more, and I understood it more. And as soon as I went into labor, we were on. We were a team.” 

“I really appreciated how informative it was. I knew a lot about the biology of birth and babies, but what we learned was just very impressive. It was a really good experience—fairly chill, fairly laid-back, and not nearly as stressful and awkward as I thought it might be. All the information—I never would’ve thought there was that much information out there!”
