Welcome to Empowered Beginnings

At Empowered Beginnings my mission is to help women feel empowered through their pregnancy and birth. Birth should be a beautiful, peaceful experience and does not have to be surrounded by stress or fear. I aim to prepare you and support you through your birth so you can have the outcome you desire. The beginning of your baby's life can be gentle and calm. I offer childbirth classes and doula services to help you achieve just that.  

Birth Doula Services

 Birth doulas provide physical, emotional, and informational support through your pregnancy, labor, and birth. Your experience should be peaceful and comfortable. Whether you want an unmedicated birth, an epidural the moment they offer it, a scheduled c-section, or a scheduled induction, I will support you through the experience. As your doula I will support you and your birth companion through your labor and help you remain calm and confident. We will establish a relationship throughout your pregnancy that allows for a connection in your birthing room. My goal is to take the work out of it for you and your partner so you can remain in the moment.  I am a certified Birth Doula and have experience supporting birth at many different hospitals and birth centers in the Austin area. I have supported a wide range of situations including unmedicated birth, adoption, c-section, VBAC, elective induction, medically necessary induction, and many special circumstances (pre-clampsia, gestational diabetes, IUGR, IVF, etc.). I am comfortable in a variety of situations and would love to talk with you and see if we would be a good fit together.   I would be honored to serve you and your family for your birth.

HypnoBirthing Classes

 I believe babies should be welcomed into the world in a peaceful and gentle way. I believe childbirth is a normal, natural, and healthy human experience for the majority of women. In the absence of a special medical circumstance, a woman should be able to birth instinctively and without force or limitation from those around her. In the absence of fear and tension, pain does not have to be a part of labor.  HypnoBirthing will teach you to reprogram the beliefs you may have held previously. You will learn how to trust your body and work with it, allowing it to do what it already knows how to. You can experience a calm, relaxed birth free from the fear and anxiety that limit your body and work against your natural instinct. 

 My goal is to help you feel empowered to have the birth experience YOU desire.  Please contact me with any questions you have about HypnoBirthing. I am happy to help break down any misconceptions and build your confidence to do what your body was created for.
