To better serve your beautiful family, Christy has teamed up other like-minded birth professionals who are just as compassionate and committed to this field. It is our goal to be able to provide professional resources and support in every area a new family might need for their parenting journey. Without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to the Babylove Family.


Founder & Owner

I was inspired to educate and guide families when I experienced my own pregnancy and birth journey. I had a prodromal week-long labor yet I was still able to have a successful un-medicated and vaginal birth in a hospital setting. This was when I realized that education was key and support, necessary. My husband was my only support person and was able to practice the knowledge, communication and labor skills we both learned through The Bradley Method® course. From there, every step of the way, I continued my education to further support our Babylove families with the latest information and techniques available.

Everyday I am so overwhelmed with gratitude that I can be involved in this beautiful, miraculous journey with parents! It is pure joy for me to contribute to a family’s life in this special way. The deep and beautiful relationships that are cultivated during our time together make this “job” feel like my life’s purpose. Having your dream birth, a happy postpartum recovery and a joyous parenting journey is indeed possible and we can help. I look forward to working with you and meeting your beautiful family!

In this society, it’s easy to be entrapped by the stigma that fathers don’t, or should not, be involved with pregnancy, labor, and childbirth. There’s nothing better than understanding what’s going on during this beautiful time–it’s our chance to be as present as possible.

Let’s face it, when fathers are actively participating from the get go, it sets the tone for how they will rear their children. A father who shows the initiative, and educates himself and his family will become better equipped to make important decisions.

I look forward to helping fathers explore their potentials, through real life experiences, honest conversations, and a comfortable atmosphere.

Certified Lactation Educator

My breastfeeding journey started almost 6 years ago with the birth of my first child. I didn’t have any foundational knowledge about feeding my baby and figured I would just wing it. I struggled, finding inconsistent information on the internet, didn’t have much support, and ended up falling short of my personal nursing goal. I went on to successfully nurse two more babies but sought help from several lactation consultants along the way. It is my mission to create a caring and compassionate learning environment where families can ask questions without judgement and prepare for their own journey with evidence-based information. I am absolutely passionate about helping families and can’t wait to help yours! -Jenn
