Great Starts Series
Labor & Birth
Background: Chevy is a Great Starts™ Certified Childbirth Educator.
I’m passionate about helping families through this transformative period in their lives, giving them knowledge, skills and a sense of community to help make their transition into parenthood easier and more satisfying. My teaching approach is fun and hands on with less lecture time whenever possible
I am married to my wonderful British husband since 2010, and together we have three beautiful children. We lived in England for a couple years. Our middle son was born at the same exact hospital as his dad, which we think is rather special. We moved back to the PNW to be close to family and enjoy this beautiful state. I love all things birth. My husband is a trooper with being frequently flooded with birth stories, newborn announcements and a house full of birth class supplies. As a family, we enjoy, hiking, camping and traveling.
