As a mother of three I understand how every birth is very different and unique. I always embraced the opportunity to share the journey of family and friends as they made their way through the journey of bringing a child into the world. I previously was an elementary teacher and over time my passion for teaching others combined with the love of working with new moms and dads and their children. Being a doula gives me the opportunity to do this.
I trained with Birth Coach Method to become certified as a doula. I am a certified GentleBirth instructor and use the techniques of Hypnobirthing and mindfulness when preparing expecting couples for labor. I have training and experience to support VBAC clients. Currently working on certification to be a Lactation Councelor. I have taken classes in massage for comfort management during labor. I have experience and training working with those who are recovering from trauma.
The journey of a doula is always being filled with new opportunities to learn and expand our knowledge to best help our clients in prenatal care, labor and postpartum care for her and her baby.
