Midwife Elizabeth Davis has offered me an amazing opportunity!  She has offered me a 50% discount on her respected and amazing Midwifery Education program!

This is truly a gift from heaven, many of you know of the pain I have been processing due to the loss of my beloved teacher, Selena Green, when circumstances made it necessary for her to move her practice to Hawaii.  This offer allows me to resume my midwifery education with another respected and powerful midwife - I am grateful and overcome with this possibility and I need your help to make it happen.



As you know, my work here in the Bay Area is open to all families but focuses on families who are low income.  My ultimate dream is to be able to offer not only the best doula training in the East Bay but to also create a conduit to allow more Bay Area women and especially women  of color to pursue a CPM and serve their community as a certified professional midwives.

This training will be a huge first step in resuming my training and it will also allow me to complete the requirements necessary per our most recent Midwifery law to work as a midwives assistant, and perhaps allow me to earn, even more income and with my financial needs met I extend more low fee services to even more families who have financial need..
I hope you like the sound of this plan and I hope that you give whatever you can!


Anyone who gives a donation of 35.00 or more will receive a copy of my new book "The Birth Plan" , which I expect to release by 10/22/16.

I am raising funds for the tuition as well as travel expenses and supplies.

Thanks again for your support of my work on behalf of Bay Area Families!
