I am the author of Asking for a Pregnant Friend: 101 Answers to Questions Women Are Too Embarrassed to Ask About Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Motherhood + Feng Shui Mommy: Creating Balance and Harmony for Blissful Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Motherhood (now available for pre-order!), a mama, Certified Hypnotherapist, HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, Birth Doula, and lover of all things babies and mamas. I'm a contributor to Pregnancy and Newborn, Working Mother, Disney's Babble, Huff Post Parents, Redbook, Cosmo, Woman's Day and more.
My work as a childbirth preparation educator, birth doula, hypnotherapist, amateur smoothie chef, and past egg donor and surrogacy coordinator allows me to work with rockstar pregnant women and their gorgeous offspring
every day. (I'm fairly certain “new baby smell” is the most enticing aroma on Earth.)
I live every day in complete awe of the creation, birth, and nurturing of new life, and consider the mother-baby bond the pinnacle of magic.
