Following the traumatic birth of her first child and seeing similar experiences all around her, Erika Bocian realized that something fundamental must change in the pregnancy and birth culture. Pregnant with her second child, she followed an intuition that led her to a Sacred Pregnancy retreat. There she found healing for herself, and a deep calling to help other mamas be empowered and find their voice during this extraordinary time. She has since been devouring any pregnancy and birth information she can find and has started the process of becoming a doula.
Outside of the pregnancy and birth world, Erika has been working as a geographic information systems specialist for 10 years, earning an MS degree and working on multi-disciplinary projects that seek answers to complex spatial problems. Erika and her husband have traveled extensively and have lived in 5 countries and 12 cities. 5 languages are spoken in their household. A lifetime student of all things, Erika enjoys yoga, all things outdoors, and the extensive DIY complete house renovation of their first home.
Erika is certified to teach the 8-week Pregnancy Journey classes + the 4-week Birth Journey classes.
