A member of Lamaze International and Birth India, she strongly believes that women birth best in a place in which they feel safe, and that women should get to decide what "safe" looks like. She offers series of customized classes for first time parents that includes childbirth education, breastfeeding, and newborn care, and weekend intensives and refresher courses for second time parents or those who need a more condensed version.
