26196154_178103372922250_4628614614678231545_nThank you for your interest in the investment of a birth doula!

I have experience with all types of birth and would love to help you achieve your specific birth dreams and goals. I love working with husbands, significant others, moms, friends, or whoever you may invite to your birth, to best support you with any thing you may need in labor and during the delivery of your baby! This includes relaxation techniques, hot and cool pads, water, food, anything in my doula bag, and with my nursing background, I can help bring necessary knowledge and understanding to families while in any birth setting or situation. Together we can welcome your new family member into the world with joy, peace and celebration!

Why have a doula?
There are many documented reasons to have labor support. Having a doula present at birth decreases the cesarean rate by 28%, the use of pitocin by 31%, decreases the risk of having a dissatisfying birth experience by 34%, and decreases the length of labor an average of 40 minutes. (1)

My job is to support you in your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period.
