I am a Certified Childbirth Educator teaching natural birth classes in Salem, OR and the surrounding area.


Labor gets its name for a reason- it is hard work! My childbirth classes are designed to prepare you for the challenges and joys of natural birth, breastfeeding and life with your new little recruit. Plus, they’re a lot of fun!


Not sure about natural childbirth? Birth Boot Camp classes are still for you.


Each couple receives 5 weeks of class instruction, filled with games, videos and time to connect with other parents, and a full-color workbook. Birth classes are held at Bella Vie Gentle Birth Center, close to Salem, Newberg and McMinnville. All are welcome, even if you’re planning to give birth elsewhere.

Hope to see you in class!
