The Birth Experience
Giving birth is a powerful, life changing experience for women and their loved ones. Whether it is vaginally or via C-section, birth is a rite of passage into motherhood. I believe it is vital to create a comforting birth space whether you are in your own home or at the hospital. The use of music, aromatherapy and surrounding yourself with support of loved ones are just some of the ways in which you can achieve this.
Through personal experience I know it is important to be well educated about the process of giving birth in order to make informed decisions along the way.
Comprehensive Prenatal Courses
Belly to Baby’s first Prenatal Class was in July of 2004. I was inspired to write my own curriculum based on a need I saw in patients coming into the hospital where I worked at that time. Throughout my 11 year career as a Labour and Delivery RN at Canada’s busiest maternity Hospital (BC Women’s) I attended over 600 births. I am passionate about birth, quality education and healthcare. Giving birth to my first child in 2003 is truly the source of my inspiration in providing quality childbirth to expectant couples. Belly to Baby offers comprehensive “Prenatal In A Day” courses and “Private” prenatal education sessions that will empower and equip you and your birth partner with knowledge and confidence for your impending birth. It is my belief that preparation skills are key tools that enable you to have a positive birth experience.
