Since witnessing, my little brothers birth, at 5 years old, I have always had a special attachment to childbirth. At 17 years old, I began a career in the medical field at a local hospital. My mother was a nurse there and I spent most of my early years with nurses and doctors. I have attended many births as a support person. Every birth is unique and special.
After graduating from high school I went to the local Junior College to begin the RN Nursing program. I took some time out to become a mother. In this time, a spiritual path has unfolded, leading me to my work as a doula. My education has given me a deeper understanding of the birthing process. I do not believe in the use of medical intervention unless truly necessary. However, I will support and respect each family in their personal decisions, as this is your Birth Experience.
I have enjoyed working with mommies, babies and families for over 15 years. Pregnancy, birth and post partum are empowering and are natural processes of strength. As your doula, I am honored to be a tender guide to this intimate transformation.
