Birth is such a personal and life-changing experience. You deserve the best care, support and understanding at this time. An empowered, positive birth experience is my desire for you. As a doula, we are the keepers of the sacred space. We are the wise women or sage femmes that will pass down to the generations the preciousness of normal birth.

- You could feel fully supported throughout your pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum time?
- You could gain knowledge of the birth process, procedures and most importantly, what is important to you as a birthing mom?
- You wouldn’t have to fear the repercussions of the “12 Hour Language” knowing you are fully supported throughout your labor and delivery and not have to be concerned about who will be there or will there be another fee for services?
- You need to work through previous experiences or losses and could have support throughout that process helping you to feel more relaxed and confident for this birth?
I have attended many births as a birth doula in homes, hospitals, with homebirth midwives and doctors. I have witnessed the strength of the women giving birth, the love of their partners, the compassion and patience of her birth team, and the amazing intelligence of babies. I have learned much from each family and am deeply inspired, in awe and grateful to have been a part of this amazing gift. I have learned the power and pain-reducing properties of water and its gift of peaceful transition into parenthood. I have learned the power of touch through the gentle touch of the midwives, mothers and babies. I have learned how rocking, toning, chanting, moaning, and singing for energy movement in labor is so powerful during birth. I am here to help you with all the “what if’s” you may be wondering about or needing guidance with.
I believe in birth and its wisdom; that babies find their own time and way to be born; that women’s bodies innately know how to give birth. Conscious birthing brings grace and spiritual intelligence to life.
