"A woman, as long as she lives, will remember how she was made to feel at her birth"

After spending many years studying and working within nursing and dental, I began looking into other career paths that would allow me to use my gifts to serve others. After having my first child with incredible help and encouragement from my family and friends, I felt a tug in my heart to pursue training to help other women try to achieve beautiful and empowering births as well. 

After completing my training with BEST, I started my journey and I truly believe that childbirth is an opportunity for mothers to discover and use their inner strengths and abilities to achieve the best and most positive birth possible, as they define it, and carry that confidence into parenthood.

It is an honor to serve as both a birth doula and postpartum doula to such incredible individuals and families in our community.
