I believe that pregnancy and birth are critical moments in a woman's life. Each moment of that journey has the potential to be empowering and to help women connect with their incredible capacity for strength. I believe that by surrounding oneself with support people who trust birth and women's bodies, mothers can claim their strength and take it into all other aspects of their lives, including the parenting of these new little people they have ushered into the world.
I believe that when women and their families are supported in the immediate postpartum period, they can heal more quickly from the birth and experience a more peaceful transition into parenthood.
Although I am a fairly recent addition to the doula profession, it is a natural progression for me to support women and their families through pregnancy, birth and the early postpartum period. I have spent the past 15 yrs assisting women with parenting and raising my own babies and have facilitated women's circles for the past 4 years. I believe in the power of authentic communication to build relationships of trust and bring that authenticity to each of my doula/client relationships.
