"Education is life itself..."

Welcome! 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.
