My deep trust of both women and birth defines my work. I love this!
I'm mom to 3 adult children, and always learning from them. Actually, I'm always learning from clients too.
I shifted to role of a WOMAN who serves WOMEN after a long career in the medical system.
The more I work in direct service to women, the more I see we're at time and place for women to own their bodies and to re-assume authority over themselves and their children. This is a universal right in my opinion.
We've all been brought up in patriarchy. So, the medical-patriarchal-obstetric system has taken control of birth, women's bodies, and the mother-baby unit. Let's shift! I work with you from the premise that women inherently know what's best for themselves and their children from a cellular and spirit place.
We are born as wise-women.
From my birth-work, I now see a clear pattern: When a woman moves, breathes, and births undisturbed in full bodily autonomy, surrounded only by people fully supportive of HER, then that birth is sacred. It's time to shift so that any women who is called to this, may birth from this sacred place.
I know that what happens at your birth and early mothering affects your life, your family, and generations on forever.
I worked 18+ years in the medical system as a cardiac ultrasound tech. This means lots of experience working in-hospital with doctors, nurses, and protocols. I can and do translate medical language.
Other stuff: Yoga, reiki, child-care, volunteer at the Riverwest co-op, walk all around Milwaukee and swim in Lake Michigan.
2020 update: I completed the Radical Birthkeeper course. I'm officially, what I was born as, a Woman who walks with Women.
