Welcome to Yo Mama!
Most of us don’t know much about ourselves or motherhood before we become a mother. I actually knew a lot (having attended 130 births) and yet I’ve found I actually know nothing. I have been leveled by my experiences as a mother. Gone are the ‘I know what I’m talking about’ insights I had before. Now I am building my truth, brick by brick, day by day, breath by breath. I am learning to listen more and say less. To watch the growth of my miraculous children, who so far surpass my expectations in every way. (which makes me very happy) Anything I have learned and am learning along the way, I’m here to share.
I am a mother, childbirth educator, birth advocate, doula, entrepreneur, and writer. That’s a lot of things to be. But first, I am a mother. This blog is the place that I want to write my own personal stories, as well as a call to action to those about to give birth. I hope you will find this place entertaining, inspiring, and empowering. I welcome your comments.
You’ll also find information here about my upcoming trainings: Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, Doula Training, my upcoming birth classes: Inspired Birth and my Kirtan gatherings. Hope to see you soon!
