Welcome! I am so pleased you’ve found your way here.
Whether you are giving birth to a new baby, a new way of life, or looking to expand and elevate your holistic business, you came here looking for more. My heartfelt desire is for you to have the courage to dive deep with all that you are - and make the most of your journey, on all levels.
I am an Earth and Traditional Birth Keeper. A student and stewardess of the ever changing seasons and cycles of mother earth and women alike. From the spring time blossoming pre-teen, to the mother in full bloom, to the wise, winter, silver crone, I work with women in all ages and stages. I study, create, grow and work intimately with herbal medicines and food therapy that assist women in their lives.
I am an herbalist, teacher, medicine maker, birth enthusiast, traditional postpartum wellness provider, constant creative, homesteader, wife, and mother. I love studying ancestry and astrology, spirituality and the metaphysical, thrifting vintage, growing a garden, and summers at the lake. I love travelling, music, spending afternoons with my nose in books, and of course my dogs, my family and our home.
I feel my work with women and birth in particular keeps me close to the Great Mystery of life, and serves as a great reminder that we, too, will venture back into that beautiful unknown at some point, so everyday we wake up is a gift. Here I am on the grand spiral, and it brings me great joy knowing that I have awakened into this life and live in my passions, doing the work I have come here to do.
Really, I am a heart centred Cancerian gal that just wants to make the most of this grand voyage… I want to travel all the peaks and valleys with an open heart and mind. I want to manifest the dream I see in my mind’s eye, and I want that for you, too!

Communicate without words
In the summer of 2019 I grew from seed the most magnificent tobacco plant that grew to be at least 8 feet tall. It was epic and often I would think someone was in the garden with me as I would always see it in my periphery as it occupied so much space. I had Read more about Communicate without words[…]
Pin drops and Violets
Musings on harvesting… My kids humour me by coming along, (teenagers, you know) but the conversations we have let me know without a doubt that they are absolutely absorbing SO much. There’s a breeze today, and poplars dominate the air… my daughter said to me, “Mom, that smell is the Poplars!” Last weekend we spent Read more about Pin drops and Violets[…]
From synthetic food and hormones, talk of artificial wombs, the shrinking human skeleton, and millions of babies born in an environment void of natural oxytocin… birth seems to be at risk of being hijacked at every turn. Physiological birth is absolutely about autonomy and respecting the natural unfolding of birth, but it also ensures our Read more about Stay Human[…]
Feasting our Rites-of-Passage
Traditional foods not only increase your chances of conceiving and having a healthy, symptom free pregnancy, they lay down the foundation for a healthy menopause. The bridges we cross during our rites-of-passage are largely influenced by the quality of food we are eating, and greatly affect the experience of these transitions. Our bodies speak to Read more about Feasting our Rites-of-Passage[…]
7 Plants for the Night Garden
You probably know by now that I am all about growing herbs and food that we can use to sustain us! But, growing a garden is so much more than that in my opinion.

The Secret Sauce
Maybe the secret ingredient in Grandma’s secret sauce wasn’t a herb, or a root, or a tangible item. Maybe the secret ingredient was her energy and the way she held her family in heart as she pulled a meal together. At one time, recipes used to be handed down through songs and rhymes that had Read more about The Secret Sauce[…]
Leaving a Legacy of Generational Health
“Under the watchful eye of grandmothers and midwives, special foods and preparations proved themselves effective at creating children who could learn faster and grow stronger that the generation before. Children who, naturally, would grow to become parents themselves, able to form their own sets of observations and conclusions about the way the world works and Read more about Leaving a Legacy of Generational Health[…]
Speech and Communication
Did women also develop the spoken language? From the earliest hunting-and-gathering times, we know that the men spent long, silent, and often solitary days away on the hunt. It takes silence to track animals. Meanwhile, the women worked collectively in or near the camp, surrounded by children, talking and singing. Language must have developed in Read more about Speech and Communication[…]
Nurturing through Nourishment
Few of us can look at the state of the world and not feel despair. The breakdown of the family unit sets up the breakdown of a firm system of values, including caretaking. And when families no longer take care of their own, other social structures must fill the gap. Joseph Chilton Pearce, in Evolution’s Read more about Nurturing through Nourishment[…]
