People are often taught to believe that women's bodies don't know how to give birth. My mission and purpose is to be the mother-to-be's advocate and to help them to feel empowered through their pregnancy and birth by alleviating their worries and motivating them through whatever birth plan they choose. Birthing can absolutely be a positive experience and I am here to show mothers-to-be how, by helping them take control over this very personally intrinsic process. 

I can attend hospital births, home births, cesarean births, VBACS, natural births, and any other variation which the mother-to-be wishes to have my company for. I am not exclusive to one kind of birth. I have a very open mind and heart to many situations.

I provide emotional and physical support to mothers-to-be leading up to, during and after childbirth through compassion and various skilled-techniques to empower and comfort mothers-to-be.
