You want an inclusive, trauma-informed, non-medical professional trained in body movement, yoga, reiki, lactation, and more before, during, and after childbirth to educate, research, share, and provide continuous support to you during this radical time in your life. You want to be heard, seen, and supported. You deserve someone to listen respectfully to all the questions that arise when you're not sitting with your care provider. You deserve someone to pay attention to and help you address your desires, your fears, your curiosities.
This is Radical Birth.
My goal is to provide professional and nurturing support so that you feel safe, comfortable, and well informed to make decisions out of a place of empowerment, not fear. As a birth keeper it is my place to respect and honor your wishes for the full spectrum of fertility. I do not provide medical advice, or perform any procedures. Fertility, abortion, miscarriage, childbearing, birth and loss are highly individualized circumstances; as such my job is to follow your preferences and provide care within my scope of practice. I do not make decisions for you and/or your partner, but I can provide a kind listening ear, a hand to hold, yoga, reiki, and resources for questions you may have.
