I have a doctoral degree in human development and family, with an emphasis on maternal child health.  I am also a [currently] non practicing mental health professional.  I am a faculty member at a local university.  I am a certified doula and childbirth educator.   I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend.  I am an activist.  I believe that when it comes to pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood change is not just a nice idea, it’s a necessity in the United States.  I am passionate about bringing that change about.

I recognize that some of you super sleuths may be able to determine who I am.  I ask that you please respect my desire to publish anonymously (for now) on this blog and not out me to the world.  Thank you.

Thanks for reading.  I hope you enjoy my content.  I also hope that at times I will challenge you, and you may wrestle with something new.  I hope you will be willing to accept the uneasy feelings this may, at times, bring.  Most of all, I hope you feel that you grow (in many ways) throughout that time you’re reading and interacting with this site.

All my love and best wishes,
