Over the years, she has worked in maternity, labor and delivery, pediatrics and as a nurse for the Nurse Family Partnership program in public health. She is also a Certified Lactation Counselor. Her passion is in walking alongside mothers during this special time in their lives. She loves to teach and help moms and families learn their own way and achieve their goals in becoming families.
In 2021, Charlotte became certified as a HypnoBirth instructor. She loved learning more about the body mind connection in class and now loves teaching it. This led her to deepen her yoga practice and knowledge and in January 2022 she began yoga teacher training under Lynn Slocomb at The Light Within Studio in West Grove, PA. She graduated after much work and study and began a further certification in prenatal yoga! She is thrilled to be bringing yoga to The Birth Center!
