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 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 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 wise, winter, silver crone, I work with women in all ages and stages. I study, create, grow and work intimately with plant medicines that assist women in their lives.
I am an herbalist, teacher, medicine maker, birth enthusiast, traditional postpartum wellness provider, entrepreneur, homesteader, wife and mother. I love studying ancestry and astrology, spirituality and the metaphysical, thrifting vintage, eclectic fashion and home decor. I love travelling, music, Harry Potter, 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!

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[…]
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.
