BIRTH MANIFESTO

I believe that giving birth should be a beautiful experience. 

I believe that your positive birth story is a memory you and your partner will cherish. 

 

I believe you are wise, capable and worthy of respect, support and confidence.

 

I believe that there is no “formula” or “right” way. Your right way is one where you feel that every decision is yours to make, one where you never feel alone and one where you are empowered with education so that your fears can be replaced with confidence in your abilities, your body, your partner and your baby. 

I believe that the hospital doesn’t have to seem sterile, foreign, intimidating or scary, but instead that we can optimize the hospital birth experience. 

 

I believe that you are a physical, emotional, intellectual, intuitive, spiritual & missional being. 

 

I believe that having a calm, holistic, reassuring care team that works together for your benefit can help you have a positive birth experience.

 

I believe in courage, in pushing past your comfort zone and choosing to be present in every moment. 

 

I believe that those moments present you with opportunities to fall more in love with your partner.

 

I believe that there is beauty to be discovered in the discomfort, and that challenges are a part of a purpose-filled journey.

 

I believe that you and your partner can be equipped for your birth and that having a positive birth experience will launch you into a more bonded, joyful and confident parenting journey.

FLEX & FLOW

About BundleBirth's Founder, 

 I have always had a fascination with pregnancy and birth. I "blame" my parents for that-allowing me to be present for my sister's birth when I was 5!  I had the opportunity to live internationally for part of my childhood where I became comfortable interacting with many different kinds of people .  I've known I wanted to be a nurse since 8th grade...something that would bundle my love for people, my desire to help others, my passion to learn and share with others what I know.

I graduated from Azusa Pacific University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and was immediately hired as a Labor & Delivery Nurse in a hospital in East Los Angeles. I learned  very quickly that this was my calling. Being allowed into one of the most significant moments in people's lives was (and is) such an honor. 

I learned that as a nurse, I had an impact on their birth memory.  My attitude, the education I provided and the support I gave could make or break their experience. As I grew in my skills and knowledge of labor & delivery, I passed my RNC exam for Inpatient Obstetrics, making me certified in that specialty. I also discovered a passion for breastfeeding which led me to pursue a certification as a breastfeeding educator counselor (CLEC). 

As I grew in confidence and continued to learn, I had many opportunities to participate in educating other nurses and doulas, in addition to my patients. After getting hired at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, I joined a group of elite nurses to re-vamp the hospital's childbirth education program and pursued a certification in childbirth education (ICCE).

After about two years of teaching over 300 couples, I had the opportunity to manage that program and mentor instructors on the childbirth and parenting education team-where together we served over 400 couples a month.​

While my reach was wide in that position, I found that not only did I miss being one-on-one with families during their pregnancy and birth, but I also longed         

       to have the freedom to leverage all that I have learned so far in my career for

           my clients.

I decided to take a leap of faith and bundle my experience, nursing knowledge, passion for education and heart to serve women (and men) in labor by offering my own classes and labor support services. I desire to help you lay a solid foundation with knowledge and tools to cope with and even enjoy labor. ​​

My passion is to empower you by helping you discover what is important to you as well as educate you with the most up-to-date information out there. I believe you are wise, capable and worthy of having a respectful, supported and confident birth. I would love to come around you, learn about who you are and your wants/needs and bundle you with love, education and support to help you have one of the best, most life-changing days of your life. 

Don't stress, I'm here for you.

Let's make your birth the happiest day of your life.
