Major Announcement! Big changes at The Family Nest

New Family Nest

I have some great news to share with you today… a shiny new Family Nest is live!

Check it out at and tell me what you think. I’m curious, what’s the first thing you felt as a new visitor?

We all give birth to so many things in our lives from time to time. Babies, new careers, parenting styles, new beliefs, habits, relationships, new ways of living through a pandemic, etc.

So for me, it was time to give birth to a new website because my style is so different than when I first became a certified doula in 2013. Through my 7 years of experience as a doula and childbirth educator 

I love helping pregnant mothers find their birth power and become birth warriors. As a result, my website had to reflect this mission.

So, it was time to upgrade and match the website with my new approach to doula care & childbirth education. 

The Family Nest is so much easier to use (and look at)!

Thanks to Sarah, the website doula, for all her encouragement, skill and knowledge. I couldn’t have pushed this baby out into the world without her! (Yes, even doulas need doulas!)

Doula & Childbirth Education

One of the biggest changes is offering virtual support services so that anyone, anywhere can have the education, support, and care for their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience. Now more than ever, this support can be given to my local community AND the world at large because everyone deserves a doula!

Some of the great new features of the Family Nest include:

AND COMING SOON to the Family Nest

is the new & improved Mindful Birth Master Plan free video series.
Which includes…

  • BEHIND the scenes reasons why Birth Plans DON’T WORK and – What to do instead… for an empowered birth experience.
  • Find your 3 Anchors of Strength for labor… so you can channel them during your transition from pregnant woman to new mother.
  • Why Knowledge is Power; How to OWN your Birth.

Stay tuned for the Mindful Birth Master Plan launch coming very soon! Sign up for our newsletter and you will be the first to know when it comes out.
