About the Instructor

Megan has had the pleasure of supporting expectant families through the joys and challenges of labor, delivery, and early parenting since 2000. She first entered the birth world by becoming a certified birth doula through DONA in 2001. She soon expanded her training and services to include prenatal yoga and, after the birth of her first child in 2003, she became a certified childbirth educator through CAPPA. In addition to her doula work and classes, Megan also trains new birth doulas as a member of the CAPPA faculty.
