Helping you achieve your birth, your way.


Whether you’ve chosen to birth at home, hospital, or birth center you deserve the respect and information that you need to make informed choices about your birth experience. As a doula it is my responsibility to make sure that you will know what to expect during your labor and work to create a set of tools to help you reach your goals. Together we can craft a support team that will help you achieve an empowered birth!


What is a Doula?

DONA International defines a doula as “a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.”

My Mission Statement

- More likely to have normal, vaginal birth
