My journey as a birth professional is closing up, and . I achieved my birth doula certification in 2001 and went on to volunteer as a doula for 2 years with the UCSD Hearts & Hands Volunteer Doula Program. I incorporated essential oils as part of the calming process with my clients.
In 2005, I had a beautiful homebirth VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean section). Best day of my life! When this 3rd child of mine went off to Kindergarten in 2011, I began doing what I call “Pampered” services out of my home. It was a hit, so I opened Pregnancy Sanctuary in June 2013. It is with great pride and joy that I offer my “Pampered” 6-hour private services, Sacred Pregnancy Circles, and Mother Blessing Ceremonies to nurture pregnant women. All ceremonies and services utilize essential oils and I've been using them for over 15 years! In addition to empowering women during their pregnancies and births, I empower adolescent girls by teaching Mother-Daughter Puberty Workshops, and love to teach others to learn how to use Essential Oils in their daily lives.
