One of her favorite sayings are ” It take a village to raise a child, but a community of love and support to raise a mother.”
She has attended many conferences and workshops and has had the pleasure of meeting popular birth icons like midwives Ina May Gaskin and Gail Tully, and pediatrician and breastfeeding specialist Dr. Jack Newman.
She is currently working on a couple of projects as a presenter for an online birth conference and an ambassador for the VBAC Summit alongside founder of Naturelle VBAC(UK).
