You’re not alone. Hearing real birth stories is the first step to feeling prepared and empowered.

I am a mama of three, author, birth story junkie, entrepreneur, and the host of The Birth Hour podcast.
After giving birth to my first baby, I found my passion—ensuring women know their options when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth. Whatever you choose, my hope is that you are informed in your decision-making and feel empowered throughout the process.
Birth is my passion and your stories are my inspiration. I love hearing about the entire journey from getting that first positive pregnancy test (!!!) to how you survived those sleepless months as a new parent. My listeners loving hearing it all too—there’s no TMI on The Birth Hour!
I’ve been in your shoes and I understand that there is so much uncertainty and it can be difficult to know where to turn. The Birth Hour is all about building community and relying on each other to navigate new motherhood.
