I was the only elementary school girl in my class talking about pregnancy and birth. Most of my summers in my (much) younger years were spent on the couch watching countless television programs about labor and deliveries. Something about the entire phenomenon seemed so incredible to me and I couldn’t get enough.

Eight years ago, when I became pregnant with my first child, I knew that it was finally my chance to experience this phenomenon firsthand. I couldn’t wait! All of my research led me to have a completely magical birth experience with a wonderful team of midwives at a free-standing birth center. I loved it so much that I ended up doing it two more times! That sealed the deal for me, and because of that, I am currently completing my training with the International Doula Institute. Upon completion of their program, I will be a certified birth doula, postpartum doula, childbirth educator, and breastfeeding counselor.

My three very different and wonderful birth experiences will allow me to provide you with the information and support you need during your labor. At your side, I will help empower and encourage you through your labor and the birth process so that you feel focused and in control. As your doula, my goal is to provide you with the tools you need to succeed at accomplishing your birth the way you envision it.

When I’m not thinking and talking about birth, I spend a lot of my free time at home with my three kids. I have two sons, ages 7 and 5, and a daughter who is 18 months. My boys are homeschooled, and when we are not schooling you can usually find us at the park…or Target.

I am so excited to meet you! Let’s chat!
