Also, she is currently training to be a birth assistant at the Brooklyn Birthing Center. Amber has been working with children and families in one capacity or another for the past ten years. Whether she was performing shows for infants to teens, orworking as a nanny and babysitter, Amber has always enjoyed being in the family environment. She joined The Purpose Project in 2010 and found herself in the jungles of Vietnam building a library and working with children in the village and surrounding orphanages. Amber believes that by bringing love, care, humor and respect into a labor, women will be empowered to trust their bodies and have a beautiful birth.
