If you are here it's because you've heard that I am a fierce advocate for parents and that I just want you to know what you aren't being told about pregnancy, birth and parenting. Or, maybe you listen to my radio show that will be in it's tenth year on June 18th. Then again, maybe you just accidentally stumbled across me today, but I don't believe there are accidents. 
After creating free content for 10 years I am at a place where I have to "get a real job" or quit. But I CAN'T quit. I LOVE what I do to much. When I found out about Patreon I cried. Then I thought, "THIS, this is it!" For $1 folks can get the content I have been working so hard on for years, it doesn't break the bank and I can do my life work! YES YES YES AND YES! 
The exciting thing is that with Patreon I can finally do things the way I want to. I don't have to appeal to a huge audience but make content for the audience I want, and who wants what I put out (I said put out lol). 
My new shows will provide good information, yes, but will be delivered in my voice; which is oft times  irreverent, funny and sometimes rude and crude. There will be some swearing, but mostly it's going to be crazy good info delivered in a funny way. 
I have always held back and tried to be very professional (I will continue to do so on my weekly radio show), but I have always wanted to do a show where I could just be me. Now I will be able to be my usual swear-y self (let loose) and still provide great info. 


The plan is simple. You help me achieve my dreams, and I will give back as much as I possibly can. We have concocted a plan which will not only pay for us to provide you with great information and entertainment, but will also provide a whole new generation of parents and birth workers with quality information  and tools to foster a new "peace on earth" through gentle birth. Scroll up and to the right to read through our "goals" to see exactly what we are planning.

I want to thank you ahead of time for using your donation to help change the world, no seriously! Between taking care of system issues and talking to people who say that they can't afford my instruction, I've decided I don't want to have to sell the information I share anymore. I mean I still would like to feed my children, but it seems so natural just to share this information rather than sell it. My husband, Craig, who created and built Doulabook, feels the same. He would much rather write and produce this show than sell websites (I mean, he started Doulabook because he was tired of seeing really bad sites created by people who had no idea of what birth workers did or believed in), so he has joined me in offering his creation to anyone trying to build a business once we reach our goals. You are the ones who will make this happen, through your generosity.
Now go take a look at the rewards!


Thanks for caring! A dollar is nothing to sneeze at. I appreciate you backing me. You could've used that dollar to vacuum out your car at the car wash or buy four gum balls for your kids when you left the grocery store, but you decided to use your dollar to help fund my dream. You rock and I love you! 
  • As my thanks you get access to the "Current Show" page, where you will have the ability to watch the latest show released 
  • Receive a thank you on Facebook Twitter and Instagram!

This is full on like buying me a beer every time I put out content. HA! I said put out.
Buying me a beer means never having to say you're sorry. Or at the very least it means you love me. And I love you. This is like you celebrating with me after I put out (*giggles I said it again), a month's worth of work. I picture you pulling out a chair for me and saying, "Eh love, why don't you put up your feet, relax. While you're at it, have a cold beer on me darlin'". In my mind you have a British accent. Here's what I want to give you in return;
  • Access to the "Current Season" page where you can watch the current release and past episodes from the current season along with B-Roll videos. 
  • I will also thank you in the credits of one show. 

Wow my friend, this is like you buyin' me a fancy cocktail with an umbrella in it. I appreciate getting a free drink when I can and at this age it happens a lot less often than it used to.
So, for making me feel pretty you get;
  • Access to the "Current Season" page 
  • An invitation to the "Live-Streamed" taping of my show (starting once the 2nd Goal is achieved). You will get to watch the taping as it happens, chat with me during the show and have your tweets scroll onscreen... 
  • You will also hear the sweet sound of your name when I verbally thank you on camera in one show of the season. 

Oh geez. This is amazing. You are helping me live my dream so now you have a new friend. For this kind of patronage you will get a random postcard from me during the season from one of the places I end up traveling to and a virtual sloppy wet kiss because you make me feel pretty. Oh and;
  • -Current Season Page Access
  • -Live Streaming Taping Access
  • -Invitation to my monthly (online)Production meeting where you will be able to weigh in on upcoming content, travel and event destinations, and what pieces you consider funny. It's like you're a sexy sexy intern, without getting groped, and you pay me. WIN WIN! 


Fifty dollars??? You are straight making me holler! I mean, holy moly that's a lot o' scrilla that will go a long way to helping me do what I love. 

“Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.” -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

This quote is from a favorite poet of mine, and not a porn star like my husband had thought. (Seriously Craig?)  This generous patronage means a lot to me, so I want to give you a place in my heart and an interview on my radio show on the topic of your choice (as it pertains to breastfeeding, raising kids or birth). No interviews on your fascinating yarn collection, okay? Oh and also;
  • VIMEO ON DEMAND free access
  • -Live Streamed Taping Invitation
  • -Invitation to monthly Production meeting
  • -Invitation to monthly brainstorm meeting
  • -Regular Production Team Member in show credits


Got a service, product or book you want to let the whole world know about? Good, go get your own show! No, seriously this level is for people who want to get some monthly advertising in a place where the audience is engaged and listening. Get a healthy dose of advertising and gratitude on Tit's, Tots and Twats. I mean, if you do anything in the gentle birth and parenting world, you would be straight cray not to partner with us.

Um what?! I can't even! I'm just like, oh wow. We are going to do all the things! You are gonna get all the things, all the things are gonna happen! I will fly out to hang with you for the day, buy you a drank or 3 and if you want, do an interview with you. We'll have dinner and commemorate the occasion with a crazy selfie of us on a tall building. Then we'll dance on a bar and swing from a chandelier. Then do something illegal. It's totes all my idea, unless of course we get caught. Then I am throwing you under the bus. Or in a ditch, you know what lets skip the illegal stuff and just hang out. You know what? I'm just going to make you sign a waiver and we'll just go for it. In all Seriousness, just wow!
