About the instructor:
Sharon Lynn, PhD
Professor of Biology, Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator,
Mother of three
Sharon has spent much of her life interested in the natural and normal processes of pregnancy and birth. She is a biology professor whose academic interests include interactions of reproduction and stress, and she has been teaching about these topics since 1999. Sharon believes strongly in a woman’s innate ability to give birth without unnecessary interventions, but also understands that mixed messages and lack of support surrounding the birth process can diminish a woman’s confidence. As an educator, she understands that knowledge is empowering.
Sharon's own experiences with pregnancy and the birth of her three children have fueled her passion for helping expecting parents gain confidence as they approach labor and birth. She began offering natural childbirth classes for expecting couples in Wayne County in 2013, and finds great pleasure in helping women and their partners navigate the road from pregnancy to parenthood.
