Supporting Mamas through
Pregnancy and Birth

My goal as a doula is to help mama’s to have the best birth possible, no matter the setting. Contrary to popular belief, birth doulas are not just for home births. In fact, I believe women who birth in a hospital, whether by choice or necessity, can perhaps benefit more from a doula’s continuous support than a family choosing a home birth in familiar surroundings.

All women and births are unique. We all enter this journey with our own backgrounds, beliefs, knowledge, hopes and fears. I respect and honor each journey and will do everything possible to create the space for a calm, loving, remarkable birth.

"Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through Birth."

I am mother of three beautiful children, who taught me the beauty and power of birth and motherhood. During my first pregnancy, I became obsessed with learning about the birthing process – emotional, physical, and cultural.

Through my own journey, I discovered much about my own strength and ability to take control of my pregnancy and labor, despite the sometimes negative forces of society and the medical establishment. 

​Since the seed was first planted during that first extraordinary birth, my desire to play some role in the birth culture has grown. As my children have now become young adults, I finally have created the space to allow birthing to be my calling.
