“Childbirth is an experience in a woman’s life that holds the power to transform her forever. Passing through these powerful gates - in her own way - remembering all the generations of women who walk with her… She is never alone”

My Philosophy

  • I encourage every expectant mother to explore what choices she has to promote her best possible birth experience that honors her own unique wishes, desires and wisdom. I believe a birth doula needs to honor the choices each mother makes for herself and her baby.

  • I believe pregnancy is an incredible time of transformation, expansion and releasing while also being called to step forward into the wonders of parenthood. 

  • I believe pregnancy is also a time of many physical and emotional changes that can come from any growth process. These changes can create challenges and fears about childbirth and parenting.

  • I believe pregnancy, labor and birth is a precious time that has memories a mother carries for a lifetime. Birth is a unique time that transforms into the miracle of a mother holding her baby for the first time. 

  • I believe pregnancy is an opportunity for an expectant mother to connect to her own inner birth wisdom that has been passed from all past generations of women. This sacred wisdom has empowered and guided women to give birth since the beginning of time.

  • I believe a birth doula can offer emotional and physical support through comfort measures that promote a more calm and joyful birth experience for mother, baby, and partner. 

  • I believe a birth doula is part of the village of support a mother can have to nurture her while she learns to nurture her own baby.

  • I believe a birth doula can help families process their unique birth stories and encourage healthy memory keeping. 

  • I believe every expectant mother should be able to have a birth doula if desired so I offer a sliding scale for my services.
