Your birth matters. 

Pregnancy and birth is journey. Birth is not just a physical event but a life-changing experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.  

 

If you have an amazing, empowering birth that experience and those wonderful memories will stay with you forever.  Sadly, if you have a traumatic birth, those memories will stay with you too.  

The benefits of individualized, professional doula support have been researched and are well-known. Women have fewer complications, require less intervention and have fewer requests for epidurals in labor.  They are more satisfied with their births, bond easier with their babies, and feel connected to their partners.  Women also return to work more refreshed and ready to embrace this new chapter of motherhood.

 

Partners, mothers, sisters, and friends all play an important role in providing a halo of support for a mom-to-be, and a professional support person provides that missing piece when it comes to a safe, satisfying and empowering birth experience. 

 

With over 15 years of experience in providing the most current, evidence-based support I can educate, guide, and help you joyfully navigate the intricate landscape of pregnancy, childbirth, and becoming a new parent with confidence.
