I Love what I do

Pregnancy, preparing for labor, birthing a baby and moving through postpartum are the touchstones of the childbearing year.  In the 8 years I have been working as a doula, I have immersed myself in every stage of this process discovering that my true inspiration lies in supporting families through the profound transition of the postpartum period. Becoming a parent and caring for a newborn isn't always an intuitive process and can range from amazing to down right scary. In my own life, I have placed great value on learning how to move through transitional experiences with gratitude and compassion.  Gratitude for the moments that work and are in the flow and compassion for the clunky moments that don't feel as great. I have found this to be an invaluable tool while working with families that are in the midst of one of life's greatest transitions. 

 

Support Philosophy

I believe that there is no one-way or right-way to give birth or be parents. I believe each parent has their own unique intuition that needs to be fostered through quiet observation and encouragement. I believe that consistent, guided support can make a world of difference in the satisfaction level of early life with a newborn.
