Elizabeth Bio

Elizabeth Summers is a nurse-by-trade turned entrepreneur. When she became pregnant with her first child, she discovered a need for accurate and balanced information about giving birth.
After consulting with her Ob/Gyn physician about her plans for a natural birth, she became frustrated with the barriers she encountered. She was told by her doctor that most women “just get the epidural”.
In order to have the best chance of birthing naturally, Elizabeth chose midwifery care even though it meant traveling nearly 80 miles to the hospital in winter weather! She realized though that not every woman in America has a choice in where she labors and how she gives birth.
She has since developed an online course for expecting moms to help them choose maternity care that is aligned with their core values. She also offers private, one-on-one coaching in-person and virtually for expecting couples to help them prepare for labor and birth as a team.
