As a certified doula, I know that every birth is different. You probably have a sense for what kind of birth you desire already. I'm here to help coach and guide you to informed decisions that support your vision. I believe that birth can be an amazing, life-changing experience for you, your partner and your baby. Through my journey of having two children I recognized the need for women to have more support during labor and to feel confident with their body in birth. I believe that our bodies know how to birth if given the right support. Historically, birth was an intuitive act. A "village" of women came to a birth...grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunts, and friends would surround a mother with comfort and knowledge. Western medicine has made birth safer in many ways for mothers and babies. But I believe that we can benefit from the intuitive approach of times past.
