    I guide women as they labor and give birth, literally and metaphorically. That may mean...well, a baby, or it can mean a new relationship, idea, career, project or lifestyle.

I guide women as they labor and give birth, literally and metaphorically.

Literally, because I guide women who are pregnant and will give birth a real baby.

Metaphorically, because I guide women laboring and giving birth to a new:

home  (physical or geographical)
family configuration
idea or thought
tradition or practice
relationship, with someone else…..or you

Ultimately, it means I support women as they labor and give birth to their true selves.

Life is all about giving birth…it’s a spiritual journey.

We labor and give birth every single day.

Some days are easier than others.  But damn, that difficult painful day–that’s when we could use support and guidance.  I call it labor sitting.  Labor sitting helps ease those powerful rhythmic waves of discomfort, feelings of losing control, fear of shaming or embarrassing ourselves, or when asking questions like, “Am I doing this right?”, “Why is it taking so long?”, “What if I can’t do it?” or “How will this affect me in the end?”

So as you navigate through your pregnancy, labor and birth, literally or metaphorically, know that discomfort is likely to happen.

With compassion and without judgment,  I’d be honored to labor sit with you so you can consciously give birth in all aspects of your life.
