Graduating with a Social Work degree and becoming a mother very early on in my adult life, I’ve spent most of my life’s work on parenting, nurturing and mentoring families in all areas of personal and family development. But my passion for newborn mamas is like no other! Giving birth is such a sacred and revered time because not only are you birthing a baby but you a birthing a whole new family.
It was nearly 20 years ago that I had my very first birth experience; my own. I was supported by my husband, mother and mother-in-law. It was evident to me then how having continuous love and attention helped shape my amazing birth story. I knew then that I would someday pay-it-forward and provide that same kind of support to laboring women.
Each birth journey needs something special and unique, yours will too. I will combine my strengths as a doula, life coach and yoga instructor and intuitively work with you (and your partner) in a compassionate and encouraging way. I will hold space for you to recognize and embrace your own inner wisdom with a calm presence and continuous emotional and physical support so that you feel empowered to allow your birth journey to unfold authenticity.
When I’m not doula’ing (both postpartum and birth), coaching/mentoring or on my yoga mat, I can usually be found outside flirting with my photographic funk by trial and error or baking some deliciousness for my husband and tireless teens.
