Short bio: When I was pregnant with my first child, I knew I wanted a natural childbirth. It was the most beautiful, life altering experience I could have imagined. I was hooked! Those endorphins did their job; I absolutely LOVED the whole process of labor and birth! I loved it so much I have done it four more times since then! My Bradley teacher (who was also my labor doula) became my mentor. I began my journey as a doula and childbirth educator in the fall of 2006. Since then I have been blessed to witness many couples become families and families grow larger. I am always honored to be asked to be a part of the birth team, whether as a childbirth educator or as a doula. When I teach my childbirth class, my goal is to empower families to make choices in their pregnancy and birth that represent what they want, need, and believe for their birth. Of course that is going to look very different for everyone. As a doula I strive to be a source of information during the pregnancy and physical, mental, and emotional support during the labor and birth.
