I am a DONA – trained birth doula.  My ambition as a doula is to educate, empower, and support mothers during their birth journey. Birth is a tremendous and transforming labor of love, with both challenges and rewards. I believe in the immense power of a gentle birth experience that allows women and men to begin parenthood with joy and confidence, knowing they had the best birth experience possible. My goal is to help individuals create positive memories of their birth, regardless of the challenges that arise. I approach being a doula with dedication to working openly with the unique perspective, abilities, challenges, and needs of laboring mothers and their support team.

I am passionate about offering non-judgmental and individualized support for the family and their choices; surrounding the environment, intentions, and medical care during birth. With an attentive and geniune presence, I aid women and their support team with physical, emotional and comfort measures. Along with, pain coping methods, relaxation techniques, communication with medical staff, and supported involvement of a partner or birth companion. I truly feel blessed to attend each birth.
