hi


H                        Hi...I'm Christine, PPNE(APPPAH) CBE(BWI)CD(DONA)PF(COS) ...I'm a certified a certified
Prenatal Educator,  Childbirth Educator, Birth Doula,
Certified Prenatal Yoga Teacher...among many things...

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. BirthWorks is a childbirth preparation class

the prepares you completely for your birth. I believe that childbirth is a natural process.  

I feel this is an important component - which is why I also studied the CalmBirth method of

Childbirth Meditation.  Since the beginning of my journey, I have since learned of BirthWorks which is a program that believes Birth is intuitive. I received my Childbirth Educator Certificate

which will help me teach women about Optimal Foetal Positioning - the brainchild of

Jean Sutton, a midwife who spent her career showing women how gravity works with the body and

positioning can make all the difference in the world - to you & your baby.


I am certified to teach Kundalini Prenatal Yoga by Gurmukh of Golden Bridge Yoga.

This training led me to my doula training- I have been trained by both ToLabor (formerly ALACE) & DONA -

I am a certified Birth Doula - I have apprenticed with several homebirth midwives & have worked in both hospital & homebirth settings.  I have completed

 Elizabeth Davis' Heart & Hands Intensives, Calm Birth Teacher Training,

Susan Weed Herbs for Pregnancy, Gail Tully's Spinning Babies Workshop, 

Gena Kirby's Rebozo "Let the Partner Do It"  

&  I have trained with Ina May Gaskin and the Farm Midwives in Tennesee.


My steps on this path has led me to so many amazing people & groups -

one lady Anna Verwaal (From Womb to World) introduced me to 

APPPAH - The Association for Prenatal & Perinatal Psychology & Health -

 Birth Psychology and the important work of so many people - 

Thomas Verny, author of Secret Life of the Unborn Child,

David Chamberlain,  author of Windows of the Womb,

Michel Odent, author Birth Reborn 

and so many more...prenatal birth classes that start from where you are coming from...

My birth philosophy is let the body lead...natural childbirth classes...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!
