My name is Sheri Brodie. I am one of only a handful of Certified GentleBirth Educators in the United States. I am an Educator, Birth & Postpartum Doula, New Mom Support Group Leader and former OB Nurse. I have been working with moms and babies for the last 25+ years and have taught Childbirth Education for the last 18 years. I came across GentleBirth while researching positive birth stories and knew that I needed to share this with the families of Southern California. GentleBirth is like no other Childbirth Preparation Program out there. The techniques taught in this program give new moms and their partners tools to have the most positive birth possible. Instead of fearing birth, these moms are excited and up for the challenge of birth and can't wait to meet their babies. GentleBirth moms are calm, confident and in control. The birth of your baby is a day like none other. Your birth should be something that you prepare for fully, anticipate greatly and remember fondly. I look forward to meeting you here!
