Hi, I'm Celia.

I have always admired birth's complex and beautiful design, seeing it as a portal into a deeper understanding of what it is to be human. When I became pregnant, I knew I wanted a peaceful and primal birth experience. With preparation and support, I achieved the birth I had always dreamt of. Just moments after giving birth - having done the hardest work ever in my life - shocked by what my body just did - in awe of this amazing tiny human in my arms - it was the most powerful and connected I have ever felt! I want to help people prepare for birth and parenthood, make informed choices every step of the way, and feel supported no matter where or how they give birth.

I love to teach HypnoBirthing® because it recognizes the impact of thoughts and emotional state on the physiology of labor. These classes are rich with information about the birth process and how to make informed decisions, how the birth companion plays an integral role in labor, and much more. But what I find to be most useful is spending a great deal of time on learning how to use relaxation and breathing to assist labor rather than resist.

I am a Mother, Doula, Childbirth Educator and HypnoBirthing® Practitioner. And I’m looking forward to working with you to have an ecstatic and empowering birth experience.

In my free time, I’m simmering mineral broth or baking homemade granola, sunbathing at Live Oak park with my partner and our 1-year-old, or traveling around the world to get immersed in other cultures.
