Birth is not a crisis waiting to happen, nor is it an ordinary day. It’s a normal, healthy part of the life cycle, and an experience filled with emotions, courage and vulnerability.
It’s the only day you will give birth to this child and meet them for the very first time. It’s an opportunity to set up a lifelong loving, connected relationship.
These are the matters of birth.
Matters of Birth Education
I’m so happy that you’re interested in learning how to have a safe and healthy birth. I believe that education truly is the foundation of how we navigate life, birth and parenting.
My name is Megan and I am a certified childbirth educator with Lamaze International and founder of Matters of Birth™ Childbirth Education. I am also the “Dainty Doula”, a certified birth doula with DONA International, trained postpartum doula, Orgasmic Birth® Facilitator, and ICAN Chapter Leader for North Charlotte, N.C., an advocacy and support group raising awareness about cesareans.
I love teaching, sharing, and supporting positive birth experiences, and hope you’ll join me for a fun, educational, and confidence building childbirth class.
I teach and serve families in the Mooresville, North Carolina area and surrounding areas of beautiful Lake Norman.
