• Birth Doula since 2004, Certification Pending through DONA
I have personally experienced birthing in a hospital setting with and without pain management and had a planned home birth. I have been attending births since 2005 and am currently working toward my DONA certification. The births of all of my children and the births I have been present for have taught me that by trusting birth and your body and gathering a team of support, you can have the most spectacular birth experience which lays the groundwork necessary for parenthood and beyond. I provide a trusting, peaceful presence at any birth planned at home or the hospital/birthing center. I honor all decisions made and respect other support persons and medical staff as all have a place.
