I'm a mother of three, a doula, childbirth educator, and medical anthropologist. I teach about the experiences of pregnancy, labor, birth, and parenting across the world, especially in Russia, Canada, Brazil, and the United States. I think all new parents need our support to do this incredible work of raising our Future.

“Your brain has only a tiny thread of a connection to the outside world. If the connection is full of fear, your pain will get out of control. If your connection to the real world is full of calm reassurance, you can go about your task of letting go.”
