Hi...I'm Chris ...I have three wonderful sons - the second and third boy were born VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean)- one at Englewood Hospital and the next at the Birthing Center - both with midwives. I attended both Lamaze and Bradley Childbirth Classes. I definitely gravitated towards Robert Bradley's teachings. He believed that childbirth was a natural process. I feel this is an important component - which is why I also studied the CalmBirth method of Childbirth Meditation.
I was a Medical Data Analyst before having children – working for Pfizer Pharmeceuticals. Most recently I’ve worked at a software company as the office Administrator – I reduced the amount of hours working which has helped me pursue my path as a doula and hopefully going onto school for midwifery.
I am certified to teach Kundalini Prenatal Yoga. This training led me to my doula training- I have been trained by both DONA & ToLabor (formerly ALACE) and am currently apprenticing with two amazing homebirth midwives before begin midwifery school in the very near future. I have completed the class work for Calm Birth Teacher Training and am seeking Births for my Calm Birth certification.
My birth philosophy is let the body lead...nature is a wonderful thing - there is a reason for everything and if you let it proceed as it is supposed to (as long as everything is as it should be..) - a miracle is waiting!
