Carmen and her husband are the proud parents of two beautiful boys. Her first birth in March 2010 was a planned homebirth, but preeclampsia at 37 weeks forced Carmen to change her plans and head to the hospital. Despite having to undergo a Pitocin induction, Carmen was able to deliver her first child without any pain medication. Carmen was determined that her next birth be completely unmedicated, and continued to immersed herself in natural childbirth education. Her second son was born at home in June 2011, with the help of an amazing midwife.
In addition to unmedicated childbirth, Carmen has experience with breastfeeding, baby wearing, and cloth diapering. She is excited to assist you on your natural birth journey!
