Kerstin Keber Smith

Hello! I’m Maria Gohdes. I’m a partner, mom to 3 (+1 due in Oct 2019), certified HypnoBirthing® Educator - The Mongan Method, trained doula, breastfeeding advocate and lifelong student. Through attending classes, conferences and lectures I continue to add to my education and have enjoyed gaining knowledge and techniques from HypnoBirthing International, Spinning Babies, Evidence Based Birth, and on fertility issues, postpartum care (including breastfeeding) and nutrition.

I am passionate about bringing evidence-based information to families at every stage, from fertility to parenthood. I teach and support families who want to have an informed, confident and gentle fertility journey, pregnancy, birth and parenting experience and who are looking for someone to walk the journey with them.
