Supporting families through
pregnancy and birth
I am a certified birth doula through DONA International, GentleBirth certified instructor, and a birth/newborn photographer. Being involved in birth work has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember!
The training I have is important and necessary, but not really the core of what I do. Being a doula is heart work. Soul work. Childbirth is raw, intuitive, sensitive, and vulnerable. I honor the importance of this transformative experience and strive to help create a personalized and sensitive birth space. As your doula, my goals are to help you stay in a good headspace (what your mind is doing during your birth is just as important as what your body is doing), provide education, be by your side continually, support you physically & emotionally, help you prepare for things you may not expect, and so much more. I will not hesitate to get into the trenches with you during your birth! Constant, intuitive, steady care and a calming influence are my specialty! I really look forward to getting to know you!
