Erin received her Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE) certification in June 2018 and is currently a co-leader of ICAN of Southwestern PA, a national non-profit whose mission is to improve maternal-child health by reducing preventable cesareans through education, supporting cesarean recovery, and advocating for vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Erin is passionate about connecting families to unbiased, evidence-based information so they can feel confident and capable of making their own informed decisions as related to pregnancy, birth, and parenting.
A former expat, Erin is fully fluent in Spanish. She enjoys working with Spanish-speaking families and hopes to be able to leverage her language skills and training to help women and families in the Latina/Latino community push for more evidence-based, culturally competent care.
