I am excited to offer doula support during your pregnancy and labor. I would love to meet you for a complimentary interview. 

I am also pleased to offer a wide variety of skills in massage and therapeutic bodywork as a way for you and your partner to take care of your physical selves before, during and after pregnancy. My career as a Physical Therapy Assistant has given me an in depth understanding of anatomy, integrated manual bodywork and detailed understanding of women's health, posture, positioning and movement that I am excited to share with you. 

You can reach me by phone or email. Check out my facebook page too!

I believe that birth is a naturally occurring event that can be accomplished successfully without intervention.

With that being said, I recognize and support intervention as an asset to complicated pregnancies and birthing. I respect the informed decision making process and the recommendations of medical care providers. 

I believe that birth can be a powerful experience for the birthing parent, baby and partner and should be considered on an individual basis with broad-spectrum knowledge.

I believe it is my job to support you and your partner in the way you want to give birth without judgement or criticism.
