My Story

My name is Briana. I am passionate about supporting families and educating parents with evidence based information as they embark on their prenatal, birth, and postpartum journey. I educate on and encourage mindfulness practices to assist families in achieving calm in their birth and beyond.  Body mechanics as they relate to birth fascinate me and I love sharing movements and body awareness with my clients that encourage body alignment to improve birth outcomes. 

 

I love helping families walk through birth in peace and understanding. I believe with every fiber of my body that birth is beautiful and empowering, and every family should feel supported and encouraged on this journey.  

 

As a mother of 5, each of my own pregnancies, births, and postpartum experiences transformed me and brought me closer to the path of becoming a doula and childbirth educator.  My first child was a cesarean birth, my second was an induction at 42 weeks, my 3rd and 4th were unmedicated hospital births, and my 5th was a fully physiological home birth.  My desire to help others experience the beauty of birth was solidified through my own birth experiences.

In addition to my love of birth support and education I am also passionate about personal growth, mindful parenting, and whole child education. My husband is a USMC veteran who is now home  with us to provide that perfect balance at home so we can thrive as a homeschooling family of 7! We have made education a lifestyle practice. You can often find us exploring the beautiful outdoors of northern California learning and growing together. I love learning about and using herbs and natural holistic healing modalities to maintain our family's healthy lifestyle. I love crafting herbal soaps, salves, tinctures, and other homemade herbal remedies, sewing, crocheting, painting, singing, playing the guitar, and enjoying life with my family! We also have three backyard chickens, a curious sphinx who thinks he is a dog, and an orange tabby cat to complete our full house! 

 

I absolutely love every moment of helping empower, support, and encourage families along their childbearing journey. I feel honored to help empower and hold sacred space for families as they guide their newest member in love. I am honored to advocate for their needs so that they can focus on the beautiful transformation that is birth and parenthood. Please reach out and we can talk all about the dreams you have for your baby’s “first” birthday!
