  • The Marie Mongan Method HypnoBirthing book

  • I will be on call 2 week prior to your birth and available through e-mail and phone for questions throughout your pregnancy and will always answer questions during those beginning months.
  • I am certified Reiki II which helps release stress through little pressure points
  • I use deep relaxation techniques to reduce pain and stress.

  • Available after the birth for questions and added support with parenting and breastfeeding.

As the only Certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner and Labor Companion in CT, I decided very early on that my training would be solely endorsed by the Marie Mongan Method. I have trained with other homebirth midwives, Reiki Masters, and the Gena Kirby Rebozo Method. I have dedicated my training to learning how to comprehensively understand the birthing body in all settings. Each birth is unique, each family connects differently, but at each birth I have seen the same amazing joy present itself. I ensure that you are calm and confident for your birth no matter what.
