When I had my first child nearly 7 years ago, I had never even heard of a doula, let alone look into hiring one. I so wish I had someone by my side, to support me both emotionally and physically, judgement-free, and someone to empower me to choose evidence-based care. Choosing the right doula for your family is an integral part of that birth empowerment, and not just for moms, but for dads too! My role as your birth doula includes love and support before, during, and after delivery. I am just a phone call or text away when you need me during your pregnancy and postpartum stage, because I want to create that tight-knit relationship with my clients.
Every birth matters, and every birth is respected here.
I am formally birth doula trained through Wholistic Woman over 4 years ago, and attended over 70 births in the past 6 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 feel like I set myself apart from many local doulas in the fact that I am also a professional birth photographer! I offer combination packages for those families looking to have both services with only one price, and one body at their birth, and truly feel like I am used to my highest potential when wearing both doula and photographer hat at once. I personally have had three full-term deliveries (2 of which were at home with a certified midwife and doula), one late-term miscarriage, and I am currently pregnant with baby number four. Between my personal birthing experiences, plus working with hundreds 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!
