I am deeply honored by every family who invites me to share in their special moments. As your birth and postpartum doula, I will be a caring, supportive and knowledgeable helper on your journey before, and after birth. I recognize birth as a key life experience that the mother and father will remember all of their lives. A doula provides emotional support, physical comfort measures, an objective viewpoint, and assistance to the woman in getting the information she needs to make informed decisions. A doula can also help facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and clinical care providers. I perceive my role as non-medical, rather as one who nurtures the laboring mother with unconditional support.
I’m passionate about the welfare of new parents and their babies. I share my training and knowledge with the goal of facilitating the transition to parenthood by “mothering the mother.” I will help you recover from pregnancy and birth and focus your energy on bonding with your new baby and other siblings.
I believe families can benefit greatly from the help of a caring, supportive person at their side during the enormous life changes that occur in the childbearing year. I provide this with my doula care.
