In a Nutshell...

I am a wife and mother. I have 3 little girls, all of which have very different birth stories--two with the support I needed and one without. My birth experiences were not easy and none of them were the sunshine and rainbow unicorns that I hoped they would be. That's why I'm here today....doing what I do--because I've been where you are and I know. I know for sure that the births I had doulas with, were 100% better experiences. Doula support makes all the difference....like, ALL the difference, you guys. I can't emphasize this enough.

 

Because of the events that transpired during my girls' births and situations I have been in while supporting clients, I am a very well-rounded doula that can support you through any experience: planned or unplanned, dramatic or "boring", sunshine and rainbows or turbulent storm, everything you ever hoped or nothing going "right". I have a special place in my heart for VBAC clients and first time parents.

 

I love supporting families and helping them achieve a positive view of their baby's birth day. I learn something from every client I serve and being a part of each one of their very different journeys is one of my greatest joys and passions. I would be honored to be a part of yours. When we meet for our consultation, please ask me about my training, the ways I further my education, and my experience.

I Support YOUR Choices

Whether you want unmedicated or "ALL THE DRUGS," I'm on board. 

I have no agenda. My only GOAL is to help you have a positive experience.

I TAILOR my support to your unique family dynamic. I will be as hands off or hands on as you need. 

02/

I DO NOT share call with other doulas

You WILL have me at you birth, barring an emergency or me being with other clients. BUT rest assured if that were to happen, I am PROUD to provide you with wonderful, dependable backup. 

03/

I work WITH your care provider

While no, I don't work for them, I also don't work against them. I strive very hard to maintain good relationships with all care providers, if possible. 

I will also ALWAYS stay within my scope of practice as a doula, not a medical provider. I leave that to the professionals.

04/

I ENJOY hospital births

YEP, I SAID IT! While I love supporting out of hospital births, I very much still enjoy supporting families in the hospital setting. It's kind of my jam!
