I love creating: writing, knitting, seeing new things come to life and thrive. I have extensive experience teaching women's health classes and counseling in natural women's health, because motherhood courses through my veins. I am also a published author and speaker.
I love to encourage and support my students and build into your lives -- to see you make goals, work hard to achieve them, and then succeed! If you are a student who will work hard -- and have fun doing so -- and want a coach who will cheer you on, then I am the teacher for you!
Baby Sign Language classes are either caregiver and child or caregiver alone. Baby Signs classes are appropriate for young children age 5 years old and under. Health coaching services are for women age 18 years old and up. My ESL classes are for women who are at least 18 years old.
In my private breastfeeding counseling practice, I help mothers reach their goals by giving them the information and skills they need to succeed, whenever possible.
I designed and teach online breastfeeding education classes for mothers and breastfeeding specialists.
I teach English classes and other educational subjects to native English speaking children ages 6 to 17 years old
I used to teach natural childbirth education classes to women preparing for birth. As a childbirth educator, I held certifications with the International Childbirth Education Association and Apple Tree Family MInistries.
I help women to observe, record, and interpret their signs of fertility, so they can understand their bodies for fertility awareness, and counsel them in how to support or enhance their fertility to match their pregnancy intentions, as applicable.

I am an expert at giving women the information and skills you need to reach your breastfeeding goals, whenever possible. I am also a Certified Breastfeeding Advocate & Educator.
I guide parents, grandparents, nannies, daycare providers, and other interested caregivers as they learn baby sign language, so you can teach your infant to communicate and build a joyful relationship together!
If you need someone to support you physically and emotionally during your childbirth, contact me to discuss! I am also trained in Psychological First Aid and perinatal loss, and was certified to support families during perinatal bereavement, through the organization, Stillbirthday, in 2013.+ Read More
I completed a workshop to tutor adults in English as a Second or Foreign Language. It was a community education course. I believe the workshop was taught by the MN Literacy Council.
As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.+ Read More
Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.
