WHEN YOU TEACH A WOMAN YOU TEACH A NATION
SOCIALIZING OUR YOUTH BUILDING FAMILY HEALTH & EDUCATION
The purpose for creating my educational programs are to teach Positive Parenting skills to those who dream of one day producing a perfect baby. Incorporating these concepts requires commitment to study and self-improvement activities. The mother and the pre-natal conditions arranged for the child determines the destiny of a nation. This program recognizes that both “pair-ents” father and mother working harmoniously with each other can do more to foster the reform so urgently needed in the world, than all the social institutions combined. Mothers and/or fathers who are co-pairenting their children but are not currently in a relationship with each other are also welcome, along with the strong support team of “community” i.e. caring family, friends, and teachers are also welcomed to learn.
Health educators promote wellness and healthy lifestyles. Covering a wide range of topics, teaching individuals, families, and communities about behaviors that encourage healthy living and prevent diseases and other problems. Health educators begin by assessments of the student or client and planning a program that suits their needs. Then, they implement the program and evaluate its success by doing evalutations and surveys.

PRENATAL CARE & POSTPARTUM CARE
WHOLISTIC HEALTH EDUCATOR
My work as a Certified Wholistic Health Educator involves people from all walks of life and experiences.
I educate about: pre-conception, planned conception, pre-birth parenting, pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum care, and positive ways to parent. I share information on how these experiences of the way from the way we are thought about during pregnancy, being born, and early childhood influences a person's adult life and health.
Originally trained as a Doula, Wholistic Health Educator/Massage Therapist, Midwife Apprentice, my "birth work" is my passion. I weave it into everyday conversations while grocery shopping, or teaching. My target audience has been from age 10 through 80 years old. Elementary through Senior Citizen Centers. Whether it's teaching about managing our Anger to create peace and harmony, Substance Abuse and Abstinence, Sexually Transmitted Infections & HIV+ Prevention, Positive Parenting or Senior Healthy Nutrition, it always comes back to how we were born, how we developed, and how our health is affected.
I intergrated the discussion of how we are born has an affect on our lives and the emotions we carry. How our mothers emotions during pregnancy influences the way we deal with stress or if our character building will be strong or weak as we live our lives. The one thing we have in common is that we are all influenced by our own parents emotions, activities, and our births into this world. It matters not our economical status, our racial make-up, or demographics, or whether it was planned and natural, or through interventions and emergency cesarean.
Explore your life as it is now and the life of your parents. Paying close attention to the conditions of your own life in utero and the conditions of your parents emotions and the womb of your mother. It will bring such a realization of just why you are the way you are. Tears from the emotions may come unexpectedly and often with gratitude because now you have help in understanding more about yourself. You have more awareness now of why your choices as a parent, should be well thought out because it will affect those lives of those yet to be born. Proper decision making in regards to having a healthier approach to life or choosing "high-risk" behaviors, should be made with a conscious mind based on the knowledge that one has received. This is all to say that my passion about "birth work" is not limited. It reaches beyond the birthing field to people who need a wholistic health education to know about themselves: mentally, physically, spiritually, and physically.
