Pregnancy, birth, and motherhood are miraculous blessings in life that can also be overwhelming. There are many choices that you will make for your health, your birth, and your child. I believe in the beauty of birth and the postpartum period and the beauty of having a support team to surround you during this beautiful, vulnerable, and miraculous time.

As a doula, my goal is to help accomplish your plans for your birth, to help support not only the mother but her husband/partner to feel in control of the labor and delivery, and ultimately help the mother know that she is made for this moment.

Benefits of a Doula
A doula provides physical and emotional support to both the mother and her husband/partner throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery, and initial postpartum periods. I provide support through various preparation meetings, continuous support during labor, and remaining present immediately after the birth.
