My Story

About me

Doula and Grand daughter
My Philosophy

Over the years, I have seen the birth experience  become  less natural and more contrived. We have been taught to ignore our instincts, which is how we all got here!  Right! We are really  just mammals after all.

My aim is to provide you  with information, so you can make the best choices  for you and your family , then provide  as much perinatal support as needed.

My first real birth experience was at 16 when my sister was having her first baby and  needed  someone in her corner.   It was  life changing! And over the next few years,  I was honored to be invited  to witness the births of several of our friends  babies.

These experiences empowered me to have my three at home with the support of   a midwife and my husband with a close friend  also in attendance.

I realized  this is what I'm meant to do! I Am a Doula!
