Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

My first child was born via c-section, my second at home via VBAC. My third was an hospital transfer. I feel lucky to have experienced the extremes of the birth spectrum and I would love to share my knowledge and passion for empowering families. Please visit my website to access clients testimonials. I am also member of the semi annual doula/staff meeting at Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica and happy to continue the ongoing conversation among birthworkers to improve mom and babies experiences at birth.
