Through my training and experience I have developed a range of skills to share with you to support your birth experience. This includes home births, hospital births, complicated pregnancies, c-sections, inductions, and vaginal births. I offer tools to incorporate into your birth plan and your vision so you can create an experience that is uniquely yours and feels intentional.

  • build a continuous connection and have someone you can turn to at anytime with concerns and questions

  • receive prenatal education so you and your partner feel confident and knowledgeable as you approach your labour

  • learn comfort measures to reduce pain, discomfort, and stress during your experience. ​

  • create a postpartum plan and feel ready knowing you will have care in place ​

  • have someone by your side as your personal cheerleader during your labour (which can allow your partner to support you, rest, and witness the birth fully!)

Pregnancy can be a beautiful experience - and it can also be a scary, confusing, exciting, overwhelming, and busy time. There are elements of birth we cannot control but there is power in preparation. I want you to understand your options, feel empowered to speak up for yourself, look forward to the experience, and come away feeling satisfied. Doula care is for every pregnancy - whether you are a first time parent seeking guidance, a fifth time parent seeking change, planning to place the baby for adoption, carrying a surrogate pregnancy, or navigating any other unique experience, you deserve support.
