Birth is amazing!  Birth is stressful!  Birth is a natural, normal, fundamental process that every birther deserves support during, and every family will be forever changed by!

My passion for birth work began long before I knew what a Doula was.  I will be forever grateful for the birth experiences I had with my three daughters, as different as they all were.

 As a mother and grandmother, I know that your birth story stays with you forever. This special, unique, and life changing experience should be one that you can treasure always. Becoming a parent is a journey that extends well beyond the day your child is born, and as a Certified Doula I provide support prior to the birth of your child and during your postpartum transition, when you are settling into your new lives together.
