Join me in Giving Back... together we can make a difference.
Here is how it works.
At checkout you will be given the option to donate to one of two non profits.
By contributing, you are joining the circle of parents committed to helping one another.
Together we can change the narrative from exclusivity to one that is defined by equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Together we can surround and resource those parents struggling with postpartum mental health issues.
And it starts with small acts…small contributions...and a willingness to engage.
I am shining a light on some of my favorite nonprofits and inviting you to join me in supporting:
“We envision a world where Black mamas have the rights, respect, and resources to thrive before, during, and after pregnancy.”
"Black Mamas Matter Alliance is a Black women-led cross-sectoral alliance. We center Black mamas to advocate, drive research, build power, and shift culture for Black maternal health, rights, and justice."
Read more about this incredible organization here:
"Together we can lift stigma and shame. One story, one post, one share, and one Blue Dot at a time."
"Our purpose is to raise awareness of maternal mental health disorders, proliferate the blue dot as the symbol of solidarity and support, and combat stigma and shame."

I am a single parent and Momprenuer dedicated to helping other parents like you feel less alone and more equipped in the first year after the birth of your baby.
Being involved in social justice efforts and maternal health are both personal and professional values of mine.
Historically, as a practitioner, I have tried to stay as neutral as I can when interacting with families. This includes being politically neutral. But what the last few years have taught me is that my silence does not aid humanity in moving forward towards equality and fair treatment of all
humans regardless of their sexual orientation, gender expression, country of origin, and race.
The stakes are too high; we need to break out of this cycle.
I commit to breaking out of this cycle.
My own personal struggle with post partum anxiety was filled with shame and secrecy as a new mother. I felt alone, less than, overwhelmed and confused. I now know that being silent is what can lead to more isolation.
The stakes are too high. I commit to breaking out of this cycle of silence.
I welcome and respect individual variation in regard to ethnicity, race, age, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, relationship style, national origin, religion, ability, and socioeconomic background.
I believe in the power of speaking up about maternal mental health and reducing the stigma that comes with post partum anxiety and depression.
Humbled. Grateful. Inspired.
The Bay Area community has continued to support my work and I continue to love and support the families that I have the joy of teaching classes to and working with privately. Thank you to Natural Resources for always supporting women educators and birth workers. Thank you to Pomegranate Center for weaving the work of anti-racism into the fabric of motherhood. Thank you to Erin Bremond of Project Elevate and the Lotus Method for inviting me to speak and contribute to the efforts of Black Mamas Matter Alliance program.
Thank you to all of the parents
I have had the honor of working with—I am well aware that you could have chosen a big box, mass marketed program...but instead chose me.
