Hi! I'm Nikki. I am a wife and mother of two, DONA and CAPPA trained labor, delivery and postpartum doula, as well as Graduated Student midwife at San Diego's Nizhoni Institute of Midwifery. I am currently completing my clinical rotation at Acorn Community Birth and Wellness Center in Fallbrook, CA. I facilitate monthly Newborn Care classes at The Birth Education Center of San Diego as well as Getting Ready for Baby and Breastfeeding classes through Scripps Perinatal Education. I am the developer and facilitator of the Practically Postpartum workshop as well as providing customized, in-home Childbirth Education and Newborn Care classes, I also provide Maternity Concierge/Consultant services, educating and connecting your family with the practitioners, goods and services families need (and may not even know they need) here in the San Diego area.
Childbirth, Postpartum and Newborn Care Education
My work as a birth educator is one that I find to be an honor. My work is a deep spiritual service, exceptional and rewarding. My work as a Postpartum Support educator is to provide you with classes and education and information to help you and your family make the fully informed choices that are going to be best for your family and your lifestyle. I offer one-on-one, custom designed in-home and small group Childbirth Education classes, and newborn care education. We will laugh at the trials that pregnancy, labor and childbirth can bring and through the laughter, you'll learn! You'll walk away feeling confident, educated and empowered.
So, there you are, pregnant, getting more pregnant by the day and a little lost. Maybe you're new to the area, maybe you're the first in your tribe to get pregnant and don't have friends to rely on for recommendations. Everybody says you need something, but from whom do you get it?
I am here to help you. I've been integrated in the San Diego birth community for the past 12 years and I've met and interacted with a ton of talented Homebirth/Birth Center midwives, labor doulas, postpartum doulas, yoga instructors, nutritionists, skilled chiropractors, childbirth educators, knowledgeable herbalists, massage therapists, wonderful acupuncturists, you name 'em, I've met 'em. I only recommend practitioners that I've either met and worked with personally or that I've met and spoken with regarding their practice philosophies. Let me help you save time and frustration by providing you with some solid leads.
