Congratulations!! I am so excited that you are expecting a BABY!

A women giving Birth is at her most powerful and vulnerable. At this special time they deserve to be loved, comforted, listened to and encouraged! I will give you all this as your Birth Doula.
I believe anyway you choose to birth your baby is the right way! No mama should feel any guilt/shame in the way they choose to birth. I support ALL Births: Natural, term, medicated, unmediated, Inductions, preterm, postdates, Epidurals, Water Births, Hypnosis, Home Birth, Hospital Birth, Surgical Birth, ect. Every Birth!
As your Birth Doula I want the mama and papa to feel empowered in their choices and have a positive BIRTH experience to remember for the rest of their life:-)
My Birth Philosophy is a true belief in the process. I believe our bodies know what they are doing, that birth is a natural process, and that we are all capable and strong enough to own this amazing, life-altering experience. I trust that no one knows what is best for you and your family better then you do! I’m an advocate for informed decision making. I provide you with evidence based information to help make your choices and unconditional support once they are made.
The journey to an empowering birth story
The word “DOULA” comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves” and it is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides, emotional, physical, and informational support to a mama before, during and just after birth. Doulas also work with your partner, encouraging, involving, and creating an atmosphere of teamwork for a positive birth story.
Women that are provided with continuous physical, emotional and informational support believe in their ability to give birth.
Studies show that when a doula attends a birth, labors are shorted, less interventions, fewer complications, couples feel more involved, use less pain medications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily!
I support ALL people regardless of race, ethnicity, age, ability, religion or family structure! Birth is a Life changing event, and I consider it a true HONOR to be part of your BIRTH!
YOUR BIRTH STORY BABIES!
