My passion for Doula and postpartum work began when I experienced the joy of childbirth 18 years ago.  I have been a part of 5 births 2 of which were my own.  All 5 births were in a hospital setting and each taught me more about the greatness of woman in the birth process.  This inspired me to indulge into the passion of mine as a doula.  The feeling of empowering a woman and family bring their new addition into the world is an honor I strive for.

 I am the “go to” person among my family and friends when they come across hard roads in their lives.  I am always there to lean on and help them though with emotional support.  I have aspired to be the person who lifts others and encourages in all aspects of life. I also have a passion for energy work in the form of Reiki, which I can offer to expecting mothers during pregnancy, in labor and postpartum to mom and baby.

 I will not only give you the emotional support you need, but I will help your family make informed decisions during your birthing experience.  This will carry over to postpartum care where I will help your family build a strong bonding connection.
