Resources

Throughout my time having babies, attending births, and getting involved in the Colorado birth community, I have developed relationships with many birth-related practitioners to whom I can refer clients if needed, and from whom I can draw advice and input. My provider relationships include doulas, midwives, childbirth educators prenatal yoga and massage therapists and parenting educators.

I especially recommend the following service providers as resources to my clients:
