ANDREA BOYD COHEN
Andrea is an advocate for knowledge, mind expansion, conscious living, nonviolence, truth, and looking deeply to understand root causes. She is a yoga teacher, writer, and editor, as well as a mother. After visiting Bumi Sehat birthing clinic in Ubud, Bali, she felt more educated about birth possibilities, and when she became pregnant, began learning about things like lotus birth, rising Cesarean rates, midwifery, and placenta, as well as common and accepted practices that seem outdated. She feels that birth is a sacred event in which the baby can be brought into the world gently and compassionately, in a safe and loving environment, both for parents and baby. She is joyfully a positive support for mothers and their journey of pregnancy, labor, birthing, and mothering.
