Kathie Neff, Childbirth Educator and Birth Story Listener
CCE(BFW), CD(DONA), Lifestyle Educator(KP), CLEC(UCSD)
It has been my privilege to journey with parents for the last 7 years as a Certified Birthing From Within Childbirth Educator. The years I spent assisting at births, as a certified DONA doula since 2011, have informed my work with birthing families. At this time, my primary services are Birth Coaching Consultations, Childbirth Classes, Lactation Consult and Birth Story Support.
My work as a Childbirth Mentor enhances my growth as a human being and expands my inner spirit. Each set of parents, or class of new parents, come to me as both students and teachers since I learn something new each time I enter into the process.
Continuing education as a mentor keeps me centered in deep, insightful reading and experiences that include Great Stories & Myths and folklore from all ages. Training opportunities bring me to many life-enhancing retreats, mentor gatherings and continuous conversations that deepen my work.
When I am not teaching, or at a birth, I enjoy writing, collage art, cooking, and my huge, wonderful family. A resident of Riverside, CA for over fifty years, I still love the newness of a spring morning with bright blue skies and the sights & sounds of nature that awaken within me a growing sense of life’s gifts.
