Choosing the right doula for your team is an integral part of that birth empowerment, and not just for you in the birthing role, but your partner in the supporting role as well. My job as your birth doula includes education, love and support towards a positive birth experience, being the ultimate advocate for what YOU want...however that may look. I am here to support you not only physically, but emotionally as well; We want a healthy mother, both body and mind. I feel like I set myself apart from many local doulas in the fact that I am also a professional birth photographer, and offer combination packages for those families looking to have both services with only one price and one individual in their birth space.
Every birth matters, and every birth is respected here.
I am formally trained through Wholistic Woman Birth Doula Training over 4 years ago, and have now attended over 80 births in the past 7 years. I practice evidence-based birth care with my doula clients, which empowers families through new & improved evidence-based information regarding birthing options, as this is an ever-progressing field with new techniques and new studies. I personally have had four full-term deliveries, three of which were naturally at home with a certified midwife and doula. My first baby, born over 7 years ago, was born at one of our local hospitals, and my experience then is the reason I am so passionate about birth today. Between my personal birthing experiences, plus working with a multitude of families one-on-one, I feel I have gained a vast amount of knowledge that has the potential to help many new families with their own birth experience. I have zero judgements towards what kind of birth you choose, the only thing I care about is that you feel educated, respected, and safe in the decisions you make. It would be an honor to hold space for you, and look forward to meeting you at our complimentary in-person consultation!
