Welcome! Healthy Balanced Birth is a platform for expectant mothers and partners, new parents, and birth professionals. Here you will find evidence-based resources and information on pregnancy, birth, postpartum, holistic health + nutrition and beyond. I help expectant mothers set realistic goals to help them lead a healthy pregnancy, discuss their labor and birth options, and create a birth preferences list that aligns with their beliefs and values. During the postpartum period, I provide support to help parents adjust to their new roles and answer any questions that may come up about newborn care.

If you’re looking for an easy way to learn more about pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and parenthood, check out the Healthy Balanced Birth and Beyond Podcast! The episodes include brilliant guests that share their knowledge and personal experiences with us on a variety of topics. Episodes go live weekly on Fridays at 8 AM EST.
