Welcome to Brave Womanhood.

This is a place for women to find education and encouragement for the stage of life they’re in. Whether you’re single, married, just thinking about starting a family, preparing for birth and motherhood, or parenting in those early years, my hope is to share knowledge based on my years of researching fertility, birth, and babies, my experience supporting new and expectant mothers, and my own experience as a mother and wife.

You have tremendous power in the decisions you make, and my hope is to encourage you to make the best ones for you as you build and nurture your family.

About

Hi, I’m Rebekah, and here at Brave Womanhood my hope is that I can provide women with education and encouragement so that they can confidently use their decision-making power as the navigate their health, relationships, and families, particularly during the times of preconception, conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and early parenting.

I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend. My path to motherhood was challenging, though not nearly as long as some. PCOS and a miscarriage that turned out to be a  partially molar pregnancy preceded the births of my boys; the pain of those early experiences has sweetened the joy of the present as I mother them.

I have attended births as a doula and provided preconception support for several of my peers. Through those experiences along with the births of my own sons, I have seen firsthand the positive impact that thoughtful, engaged decision-making can have on a woman’s health, personal growth, mothering, and family life. There’s no one right way to do family planning or birth or parenting, but there is a right way for YOU. And I hope to help you figure that out.

Thank your for joining me.
