My Philosophy

I feel the most important aspect of the Doula/Client relationship is TRUST. Childbirth is many things; it's beautiful and magical but it is sometimes challenging and long.  It also gets pretty intimate, so you want to know that your birth team is there to support YOU, in every aspect of your journey.

The chemistry that I have with my clients is of the utmost importance. It is vital that our evergy is in alignment as we continue on this journey together through pregnancy and childbirth.

My education, training and life experience, have formed a well-rounded approach that I take in supporting my clients so that they can have the  best experience surrounding the birth of her child. 

My Story

My story begins with the beautiful birth of my son in 2007. He was born at home into the loving hands of my midwife and long-time friend. His joyous coming and my amazing birth experience led me on a journey with the passion to advocate for women to attain  a nurturing, fulfilling and unforgettable birth experience much like my own. My birth Empowered me in ways that were beyond imaginable. I feel that EVERY Woman should have an Empowering Birth Experience.
