I am professionally trained in childbirth and doula support to help support you emotionally, physically and educationally while you are expecting. I have been a doula for over 10 years and have attended over 110 births. I care about your experience during this special time in your life!
My purpose is to help you have a safe, memorable, and empowering birthing experience. I will help you before the baby arrives and after to ensure you are prepared, relaxed and comfortable. My goal is to help you feel relaxed, informed, and empowered during the birth.
I will help to provide you comfort with pain-relief techniques including breathing techniques, relaxation techniques, massage, and laboring positions. I will also work with and encourage participation from your partner and offer reassurance.

We go to you
No matter where you have your baby I can be there. Many people believe that doulas are only involved in home births. Doulas actually do mostly hospital births and can be of greatest assistance there.
I will assist you no matter the location to help the laboring mother with relaxation, position changes, massage, and avoidance of unnecessary interventions.
