All classes are taught by myself, Kristen.  I have been practicing as a registered nurse in Austin since graduating from The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2008.  I also have a Master of Science in Nursing degree from UT Austin, where I focused on maternity education.  I have experience working in the hospital (labor & delivery, newborn and postpartum), as well as birth centers. I began teaching childbirth classes in the fall of 2012.

I decided to start Swaddled Prepared Childbirth in the spring of 2014 because teaching childbirth classes is the only job I’ve ever had that has never once felt like work.  I am very passionate about educating women and their families about what to expect before, during and after the delivery of their precious new baby.  Because I have worked in the hospital setting, I have firsthand knowledge about what is truth and what is myth.  By attending childbirth classes, you are setting yourself up for success, because you will know what to expect and have the information you need to feel empowered to make your labor and delivery the most positive experience possible.

Thanks for stopping by! ~Kristen
