Hello, and welcome to Eden's Garden! My name is Amy Blake Rollogas. I am a wife and the mother of one daughter, Eden. Eden's birth defined me as a woman in ways I never dreamed possible.
Since Eden's birth, I have become a childbirth educator. I aslo consider myself a breastfeeding and normal birth advocate. I am certified to teach childbirth classes through ALACE (the Association of Labor Assistants and Childbirth Educators).
ALACE is a wonderful organization that trains labor assistants(or doulas) and childbirth educators. I chose to train with them because of their woman-centered approach to birth.
The prime emphasis of the ALACE program is for pregnant women to make active choices to create the best possible birth experience--whether it be in the hospital, at home or in a birth center.
