You want to get pregnant.

The choice to become a parent is one of the biggest you’ll ever make. It will radically reorder your life to create a whole new reality, adding a new dimension to your identity, so my encouragement is to be as conscious as possible about that from as early a point as possible.


Preconception isn’t just about popping a prenatal vitamin.

Everything from the type of exercise you do, the foods you eat, engaging in practices to calm your nervous system, and stoking the fires of your creativity all support a pleasurable pregnancy. It’s also a time when you get to consciously create this next phase of your life.

Who do you want to be?
How do you want to show up as a parent?
How do you want to reorganize your life to create space?

Conception requires creating the energetic space in your life for a baby to occupy and preparing you on all levels⁠—body, mind, heart, and soul⁠—to become a parent.


My Holistic Approach

One year or more ahead of the time you’d like to conceive isn’t too soon to begin this work. Give yourself the gift of time to be fully prepared for this important life experience.



We prepare you physically to receive and conceive by bringing your body into the healthiest state possible. We’ll create a plan to cleanse your body of toxins, internal and external, and engage in the best plan for rest, exercise, and nutrition to lead you into a state of vibrant health. What are you ready to change to bring that optimal level of health to your life so that your body is able to create this new life?



We’ll look at your relationship with the parent/child dynamic and examine your beliefs of what it is to be a parent, what your own experiences were, what you want to carry forward, and what you want to let go of. We’ll explore your current relationships, especially with your partner if you have one, and how to bring a higher level of emotional intelligence to your relationships and communication.



In this phase, you’ll start building your knowledge about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Learn about these ahead of time so it’s not a crash course that you’re trying to cram in while you’re pregnant. When the time comes, you’ll be really clear and can make choices from an informed position, as well as feel more confident without worrying or questioning yourself.



Our sessions will help you make the commitment to this being a conscious process. You are opening the door for another soul to come in and share this bond and contract with you in this life. I’ll support you in doing the deeper work of defining, “Who do I want to be? How do I want to show up? What are the qualities I want to embody?” and then consciously bringing those things forward into your life.

Why you should work with me
(aka. my cred)

After two decades of experience in childbirth preparation, empowerment, and support (click here to see my full resume), I’m an expert in helping women and their partners consciously prepare for the birth of their child and the transition into parenthood.


I founded a leading maternity consumer advocacy organization that’s worked first-hand with thousands of parents to become fully informed and engaged in the process, so my recommendations are based on personal experience and my knowledge of the healthcare industry nationwide. I focus on each individual parent’s needs, not giving blanket suggestions that may or may not apply to your birth.

Beyond mere information, I'm a fierce champion of women. I know absolutely that women are capable of birthing babies, and every time a client looks into my eyes, she sees her own magnificence reflected back. No matter what your unique challenges may be, I believe unfailingly in the creative genius of the female body and power of women to thrive.

We’ll prepare for your conception and birth through a process that’s the result of my years of experience.


My Signature Process

Our first session together, the Conscious Creation Session, is two hours long so that we can chart the full landscape of your conception through a simple three-step process that I’ve been using for years in my doula and coaching practice.

We'll support your body, mind, soul, and heart for a holistic approach to birth that will leave you feel nourished, energized, and seen. We’ll also address any fears you have about your life after the baby comes, how to navigate changes in your career, relationships, body, and identity so that you step forward with trust in yourself and a plan for creating your new life as a parent with joy. After our first session, you can book in more sessions to for continued support, but even just one Conscious Creation session will give you a comprehensive plan for bringing a child into your life.


Your Vision

We start by grounding ourselves in the reality that birth is not just a means to an end. How your baby comes into this world matters. How you live as a parent matters. You’ll build a personal vision of your birth approached from love rather than fear.


Your Blocks

Once we’ve established a vision that’s grounded in love, I’ll provide high quality information to help you make informed, evidence-based decisions on how to help your body move into a state of optimal health that reflects your personal beliefs, values, and desires.


Your Plan

Your body will not want to create new life when fear or stress is present. We’ll talk about breaking any current cycles of stress in your life as well as address any fears and old stories, habits, or beliefs that may be blocking you from conception.

Should I bring my partner?

One Word: Yes!

If you're conceiving your child with a partner, they are a welcome and encouraged part of our process. It's important for both parents to consciously choose how they want to show up for themselves, for your child, and for each other.  

I will help you identify family dynamics, patterns and stories that you each value and want to carry forward as well as those that you're ready to release. What are the greatest gifts that you received from your own parents that you want to share with your child? What parenting challenges did your parents have and what different choices would you like to make? What stories have you inherited that make you proud of your lineage? What stories are harmful and will end with you now?

You'll leave your sessions with a deeper, truer understanding of what each of you desires and expects. Together, you'll create a shared vision for birthing and parenting that will help you enter this life transition as a team, aware of the challenges and strengths that each of you bring. You'll develop a shared Vision Statement for birth and parenting - your shared vision, goals and understandings that will help guide you through your child's entire life.
