happy birth day.

 

"If I can do it, so can you."

My name is Amy Brooks Murphy and I know from my own birth experiences that a woman's body was designed to give birth spontaneously, vaginally, naturally. I have never felt more powerful as I did after the birth of all four of my children. My birth experiences taught me about patience, flexibility, perseverance, unconditional love and that I can do anything I set my mind to.

 

My passion for birth and babies is relentless. I enjoy researching and gathering any information I can get my hands on. Every time I start a class I am excited about the pregnant people I will get to spend my Monday and Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings with. I feel so fortunate to be involved in one of their most sacred, life changing and powerful experiences ever. I also love that we can stay connected through my weekly postpartum playgroup, in home lactation support, placenta encapsulation services and parent coaching.

 

When I’m not teaching or helping families I’m with my own family. My husband Tim and I have four kids, Mae, Stella, Brooks and Tula. We enjoy playing with our puppy named Frida, cooking, traveling, listening to music, watching soccer, swimming in our backyard pool, eating sushi, and hanging out with friends. I love the fact that my kids are already aware and empowered by the beauty of birth and breastfeeding. Badass women unite! XOXO
