One-on-One Coaching

Planning. Preparing. Presence.

Focused on your unique needs

Working one-on-one is a terrific opportunity to really hone in on the unique needs of you and your pregnancy. Group classes are a wonderful and economical way to learn information and skills in a general way, but there is not time to really focus on each individual mama, or couple, for any length of time. All mothers benefit from one-on-one support from the beginning of their pregnancy. All babies benefit from having a mother who is held in a safe space, encouraged to do what's best for the well-being of mama and baby.

Mothers have incredible instincts. I am a big believer in honing your intuition. I also know, from both personal experience and observation, that many mothers lack the support, encouragement, and practical information that they really need. Mamas often compromise, or are willing to put themselves last, in order to make things more manageable. I want you to put yourself and your baby first - knowing how to care for yourself and the choices you have so that you have the very best outcome - for your birth and family life. No one is more important than you and your sweet baby.

I coach focused on what you need based on the wisdom I have accrued over decades of working with mothers and babies. I am guided by both my training and my intuition. Exposure to practical and useful concepts you may not have thought of can help you on your journey. We can also take a deeper look at your needs, feelings, and any challenges you are facing. Sometimes another perspective is all you need to get a clearer picture of your options. This can enable you have the confidence to do what needs to be done and to move forward. I can help you get into a really great place where you feel grounded, secure, and strong in yourself.

I work one-on-one in person and via Skype/Zoom.

If you are in my childbirth classes, you know I am available to connect briefly before or after class and in-between class sessions. Sometimes families from my class need the opportunity for a more in-depth and focused discussion about a particular topic, concern, or to discuss a situation that they are dealing with and want more information about. You can schedule time with me one-on-one for a more in-depth discussion on the topic dear to your heart and/or help figuring out your options.
