When I was pregnant with my first child I was living in Mexico, working with a non-profit organization. We helped those who were at-risk and living in extreme poverty. It seemed the cultural norm that pregnant women went through their pregnancy without really understanding what their body was going through and they didn’t know what to expect during birth. They were going through their pregnancy with a huge void in a vital part of their motherhood journey – support and knowledge. Thankfully, I had the opportunity to take birthing classes and I was surrounded by supportive and loving people during my birth in San Diego. I saw what a difference it made in my experience verse the experience of those I knew who didn’t have the opportunity to learn. When my daughter was born something else was born along with her--a passion to help women have the same opportunity I did – to have education and support during pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum.
