I am a DONA certified birth doula and mother with a broad range of expertise: pediatric nursing, prenatal yoga teacher, Mindful Based Childbirth and Parenting Educator, and Lactation Educator Counselor (I also raised 3 wonderful children). For me, birth work is a calling, and I do this because I believe birth is a sacred, transformative journey that has a lasting impact. I try to promote the best possible birth experience by honoring the inner wisdom within you as a normal physiological process while also honoring when you need to explore medical interventions. It is important to me to empower you to have a voice and to provide evidence-based information to make informed decisions. The world is forever changed as each baby comes into it, and I try as your doula to enhance this partnership between you, your baby and those you choose to support you. As you look into your baby’s eyes for the first time, and they look up into yours, I take a deep breath and am mindful of what a miracle it is to celebrate another birth and the beginning of parenthood.
