More information: After the birth of my first son, I felt so inspired about childbirth. It was amazing and also overwhelming to me: all the different choices we have around this time. I realized the importance of having information to be able to make informed choices. I also saw the value of having extra support after the birth in order to nuture this really special and challenging time. My hope is that I can help women/couples to have more empowered welcoming of their children. I live in Great Barrington, MA with my 2 boys, born in 2003 and 2006.
