I founded Sacred Roots in 2011 with the goal of reclaiming birth as a physiological process that works.  Since then, I’ve been helping women and families vision their ideal experience, and then working toward a plan to best achieve that vision.  With the right information and support, your birth and transition to parenthood can be thoroughly empowered and beautiful.

I look forward to meeting you!
