About Linda

Linda has been married to her husband, Bob, for 35 years and is the mother of six children and grandmother of five. She loves everything birth related and especially loves helping new moms have confidence in their natural parenting abilities. As mother of three adopted children who experienced early childhood trauma, she understands the effects of trauma on attachment.

Her personal experience in this area gives her a desire to help new mothers and fathers with this very important foundation of parenting. Linda has been professionally trained and certified as a doula with DONA International and has assisted many mothers during pregnancy, throughout labor, and after birth to provide emotional, physical and informational support. She has extensive education in body work for mothers and babies through Spinning Babies®; a rigorous, 100-hour Dynamic Body Balancing program with Dr. Carol Phillips; and Body Ready Method®.

Her goal is to help women have a more comfortable and easy birth experience so that they can bond with their new baby and enjoy a mutually secure and rewarding attachment.
