Short bio: I'm a trained birth doula who found myself immersed in birth community during my first pregnancy and birth in 2012 - and jumped in with both feet. We welcomed our second child in 2014 and both births were such a positive experience that I want that for all parents - supported, in control, and informed. I don't believe in the rather common “It’s just one day, you can get through it” attitude – every parent I've met has strong feelings around their birth experience and the memories last a lifetime. I feel that education and one-on-one support are absolutely the best thing parents need during their transition into parenthood.
