I'm a doula, midwife assistant, and student midwife who is dedicated to better birth outcomes and bringing about progress in women's health. Before I became pregnant I had seen a documentary called "Outlaw Birth". It showed women's struggles in the UK to get the prenatal and birthing care they desired, leading them to the decision to birth at home unassisted which is illegal in their country. After doing my research to make decisions for my own pregnancy and birth, I learned how limited and inaccessible birth choices are here in the US as well. I was moved by how many women were lacking options or the awareness of those options, also the support they needed to feel safe while birthing. Naturally I've been drawn to birth work ever since. Nurturing and supporting birthing and new mothers is my passion. Holding space for you to birth and bond with your baby is my goal. Providing assistance with all the choices and challenges that come along with the new baby transition, while being a quiet strength for you to lean on.
I am your DOULA.
With both of my pregnancies, I researched, planned and was very intentional about my birth. I had a lay midwife with my first son and a Licensed midwife with my second son. Both were born at home, one in the water. Neither was exactly how I pictured, although beautiful and perfect in their own right. As with all births, our babies tell their story. Each unique. Each exceptional. Each birth reminding us of our wonder.
