I am a Christian who whole-heartedly trusts in God's design of the womanly body. My passion is for natural births.

I am a mother of 4. My first baby, JJ, was a hospital birth. My second, Chaya, and third, Hunter, were born at Fruitful Vine Birthing Center; my third baby was a water birth. My fourth baby was a homebirth.
After I finish certifying for Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association (CAPPA) Childbirth Educator and Labor Doula, I am going to do other certifications with CAPPA including lactation consultant and adoption doula. I am also training to be a Midwife Assistant
(Birth Assistant).
I am currently attending college for my BS in American Sign Language so that I can also serve the deaf community in birth and birth education. After this I plan on working on my Masters, and possibly Doctorate, in Perinatal and Prenatal Psychology.
In my role as Doula, I do not see myself as a "birth coach." I help the mama coach herself so that she can call the shots to achieve the birth she wants. I also help her educate herself by pointing her towards the resources she needs and helping her do research so that she feels comfortable in the choices she makes. I love everything about birth and helping women empower themselves.

Oh, my real name is Nirvana but everyone knows me as Harley. I answer to both.
