A little about me... Some of you may know that I got into birth education by way of The Bradley Method(R) classes that I took once during my first pregnancy in 2002 and again in 2004 with my second. I strongly believe that the education I got through those classes was what helped me to avoid medicating my baby while being induced for 11 hours and led me to discover the world of gentle birth. I eventually went on to study with The Academy of Husband Coached Childbirth(R) to become certified as a Bradley Method(r) educator in 2006. In 2010, I joined Brio Birth to gain freedom to teach material that I knew was essential to natural childbirth success.
Through teaching birth education, I discovered a very important need that was not being filled for new moms, Postpartum Support. I learned about placentophagy and placenta encapsulation. In December 2009 I completed my training and in June Certified with Placenta Benefits Ltd, bringing encapsulation to the Treasure Valley. I absolutely love doing this! I love hearing about each birth story and about each woman's recovery from birth getting back to 'feeling like herself' again. I look forward to hearing your story too...
