Hi! I'm Lisa. First and foremost, I'm a wife and mom of two little girls. I live in the great city of Chicago, but am originally from Clearwater, Florida. I enjoy hiking, foraging, reading, learning, traveling and all things birth and baby related!
My interest in birthwork began after my second daughter's birth. My first birth experience left me feeling confused, unsatisfied and reluctant to ever give birth again so I set off to learn all things birth related to ensure the second time was better. I read all the birth books, listened to podcasts, watched lectures, and took online and in-person classes. My second birth experience was amazing and left me feeling so empowered and wanting to scream from the rooftops about how magical and empowering birth can actually be. My passion for birth led me to help my friends plan and prepare for their births and eventually to study and certify as a doula so I could help parents in my community have empowering birth experiences. My goal is to help parents reclaim birth as the magical and empowering experience it is meant to be.
