Who we are
Every issue of Birthing Magazine is information packed and is the result of the dedicated effort of our professional staff. With volunteer writers and photographers an original, educational and contemporary magazine is created. It is distributed to 10,000 families three times a year and viewed online around the world. We are grateful to all who contribute to the growing success of Birthing Magazine.

Kirsten's education includes a BA in History and English and a BEd After Degree. She is also an IBCLC or Registered Lactation Consultant. She is happily married to her high school sweetheart and they have five beloved children, including two sets of twins. She has an addiction to office supplies and is far more likely to check items off a list made with colouring markers.
