Supporting YOUR birtH EXPERIENCE,body & soul

My Philosophy

Congratulations on the imminent arrival of your baby! I’m honored for the opportunity to assist families with this wonderful and exciting journey into parenthood; hiring a birth doula is a great step to make along that journey.  My goal is for expectant families to feel PREPARED, POSITIVE and EMPOWERED when the big day comes. Within our current birth culture, it’s not uncommon for expectant parents to focus most of their preparation on accumulating all the things baby will need once they arrive: a stroller, car seat, crib, clothes, clothes, clothes!, etc. But oftentimes little consideration is given to how baby will make their arrival. When thought is given ahead of time to the atmosphere baby will enter when transitioning from womb to world, it can transform an already profound moment into a truly magical experience. It’s also a tremendous benefit for the birthing person to understand what is happening within their bodies to create this miracle, as well as recognize and honor the truly awesome power they possess to bring life into this world. Not only will I be there for the birthing person and their partner during labor in every way, but I will also guide them in their journey to learn all there is to know ahead of time so that they feel prepared for birth, both physically and emotionally. Just as every family is different, so is every birth. Regardless of what type of birth a family decides is best for them and their baby, they deserve the special support only a doula can give. And while there are never any guarantees the birth will go according to plan (because let’s face it, baby is in charge), it’s essential they know they have choices along the way and should always be active participants in the process – it’s their baby’s birth, and the decisions they make matter.
