"If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it."

- Dr. John Kennel

I have been happily married to my wonderful and supportive husband for over 20 years, and we have four beautiful children.  Pregnancy and the whole birth process have always fascinated me, and I am firmly convinced that we, as women, were wonderfully designed to be capable of such things. Having four children of my own, I can personally attest to the fact that no two birth experiences are exactly alike.

As a DONA trained doula, my aim is to draw upon the formal training I have received, as well as my own personal experiences, in order to be more empathetic, gentle, and nurturing, as well as a source of comfort, guidance, and strength. 

Some may feel hesitant about using the services of a birth doula.  However, please be assured that my role as your doula is to listen and not judge, assist you in choosing birth options that are important to you, and help you have the best, most satisfying, and healthiest birth experience possible.  I will always be very happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you might have about how we can best work together.
