My Story

How I Got Here


Hi! My name is Ye Jee (rhymes with "veggie!")

I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things. As a wife and mother of four, my love for these things has only grown over time!
My passion for natural childbirth started during the pregnancy of my oldest son, in 2012. As my husband and I sat through our first series of birth classes, our awe for how the female body works during childbirth grew and I couldn't believe that it wasn't common knowledge to everyone! 
From then on out, I felt compelled to help educate and prepare women and their partners for the process of childbirth! In 2015, through rigorous training, I was certified through the American Association of Husband-coached Childbirth to teach Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth classes. As my passion to help women continued to grow, I decided to step away from The Bradley Method and begin teaching more inclusive, up-to-date information, for a broader, more diverse demographic of people!!
I would be honored to help you and yours prepare for the natural and informed childbirth you desire, by preparing both you AND your partner for the trials and joys to come!

Birth Support

Birth isn't easy and it is not something you should have to do alone. If you do not have someone to support and advocate for you through your birth, contact me. I strive to help improve women's birthing situations, regardless of their social or financial standings. If I'm not able to help you personally, I will work to help find you the resources necessary.
