Support For You & Your Growing Family

You deserve a supported birth and postpartum period where you feel relaxed, confident and empowered. You deserve a doula! My non-judgmental support and knowledge before, during, and after your baby’s birth can make the transition into parenthood calmer and easier. I support you and your choices, so your birth and the early weeks of your baby’s life can be filled with joy and pride.

Calm, conscientious, caring doula support for you!

Philosophy

I strive for a supportive, non-judgmental approach to birth. I became a doula to support pregnant people and their families in making their own choices and in feeling empowered about their birthing experiences – whether that means a planned home birth, a totally unmedicated hospital birth or a scheduled Cesarean section. I believe that a birthing person should have the birth they want. As a doula, I do not judge your choices. I’m there to support you in the best decision for you, your baby and your family.

What Is A Doula?

The word “doula” comes from the ancient Greek meaning “a woman who serves” and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth, or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.

Studies have show that when doulas attend birth, labors are shorter with fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily.

I’ve been involved in childcare for the majority of my life and, as the daughter of a former NICU nurse, have always had an interest in pregnancy, birth and babies. Serving expectant and new families is a natural fit for both my interests and passions.¬†I absolutely LOVE supporting mothers, fathers and partners before, during and after one of the most important days of their lives…when they become parents!
