    • Welcome Crista! Thanks for visiting my space. My journey with birth work has been a wonderful thing. I love it! But it is challenging with a growing family. I blog about it occasionally but kinda keep that part of life more sacred, or have learned to over the years. I hope you’ll find yourself back here and maybe a birthy post or two will catch your eye. Poz vibez to you!
