NATIVE BIRTH...native life - Informed Beginnings© Natural Childbirth Education

Welcome to Native Birth & Informed Beginnings©!  

 I chose the word native because it means 'instinct' and 'innate'.  Two words that strongly express how I feel about women and birth.  I believe women are born with the ability to give birth naturally, without drugs or interventions.   Deep down inside of us all there is the knowledge and   the ability to let yourself go and give in to the powers of nature.  Childbirth can be one of the most beautiful experiences in a woman's life.  I am passionate about giving women and their partners the tools they need to approach their labors with the confidence that they are making the best choices for themselves and their baby.

~Learn how to trust your mind and body
~Empower yourself to give birth naturally!

I have 4 children all born naturally in a hospital setting; with my husband and my midwife by my side.  I approached each birth with an acceptance of the birth process.  I share my experiences with my students to help take the fear out of childbirth, so they too can have an unforgettable birth experience!  When I am not teaching classes I am sowing the seeds of Illinois native plants for Pizzo Native Plant Nursery 

"Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a spiritual uplifting, the power of which whey have never previously been aware...To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.  She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon."
