I have been passionate about the beauty of birth and the powerful bond between mama & baby for as long as I can remember. As the eldest daughter of a successful midwife, as a teenager I began attending births and providing for the many needs surrounding this transition. After giving birth to my own 6 children, I know firsthand how delicate and varied this experience can be. I come to your bedside with an expertise not often found in the Doula world. It is an honor to serve you.
