Originally from Vancouver BC, I became a HypnoBirthing® and All-things-hypnosis "Enthusiast" after experiencing first-hand what it was all about - twice! During my first pregnancy in Scotland in 2008, I enrolled in the HypnoBirthing course to educate myself about the birthing process, to learn specifically how to relax and keep calm, and it was important to me to create a gentle birth experience for my baby as best I could by avoiding unnecessary interventions or meddling that could interfere with my plans. I was not let down...In this course I learned to look forward to my first birth experience without fear, and to ‘own’ this birth by making informed choices so I could have the natural birth that I wanted. Upon completion I felt SO empowered by what I had learned (and practiced) I was absolutely confident that I could birth safely and comfortably at home – which I did! Two years later I still couldn't stop talking to anyone and everyone about my exhilarating experience! And my passion and enthusiasm only grew to new heights after another blissful waterbirth at home in Kelowna for my next son in 2010. And just 4 months after that Born To Birth was, well...born! I knew I had found my calling and trained to become a HypnoBirthing Practitioner and HypnoMothering Practitioner. From there I became dedicated to helping empower parents throughout their journey from pregnancy to preschool, by becoming an instructor, advocate, and friend to all Goddesses going through the same thing I did, but with their own unique stories.
