About

This blog is my attempt to blend together the things that I love the most:  plant medicines, birthing, food, teaching, creativity, and self-expression.  I write so that I may continue to dive deeper into those things that inspire me.  I write in the hopes that something I say will inspire another to be open to their own passions. 

My Bio-

I am a mother of a four year old boy who was born at home, in a waterbirth, with the help of his midwives, father and doula.  I am currently pursuing a degree in Integrative Health at Northern New Mexico College.  For the past several years I have been working with the Yiya Vi Kagingdi Doula Program as a community doula, childbirth educator, prenatal yoga instructor and for a time as program co-coordinator.  I have studied herbology with the East/West herb School, Bridgitte Marrs, and interned with Tomas Enos of Milagro Herbs.  I have been a practicing herbalist for 11 years now.

 

I am always willing to talk about herbal remedies, nutrition, and homeopathic remedies for mom and baby if it is desired.  I am very comfortable working with mothers who want to breastfeed, and have helped many mothers and babies throughout the different stages of a breastfeeding relationship.  I like to educate women to help them understand the many choices available to them in order to have a positive and healthy birthing experience.  I seek to provide families emotional and physical support, non-judgement, and understanding.  I believe very strongly in trusting a woman’s inner knowledge of the birth process and want to nurture mothers and babies so that they can have a strong and beautiful beginning.
