In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their two young children. Rina delivered both her children into the hands of midwives after a beautiful, unmedicated water birth at a freestanding birth center in June 2014 & July 2015. Rina believes in the God given ability for a woman to birth babies naturally, which she has witnessed countless times supporting women during labor.
