Birth has been a continuous thread of inspiration in my life. For as long as I can remember, I was a part of new families lives, whether it was my own, a family I cared for, or through yoga, I have always been attracted to and in awe of how we come to be. After attending a close friends birth, I fell completely in love with birth. At the time I didn't know what a doula was and so I started reading all the books I could find about birth. I soon after trained as a doula and started practicing and since 2013 I have attended over 60 births, each one unique in its own special way. In 2017 I gave birth to my first child peacefully at home with the support of home birth midwives. The experience I had during pregnancy, birth and postpartum was incredibly positive and empowering, one that I hope more women in this country can experience.

My Birth Philosophy
I believe that birth can be an empowering and life changing experience for both the mother-to-be and the partner.
Regardless of what the outcome is, every family deserves to be heard, to feel respected, and cared for during this transformational process.
My aim is to support you and your growing family in a non judgmental way, honoring that each birth experience is highly personal and different from any other. It is my job to offer continuous care and mentoring throughout this incredible journey so that your family feels well prepared and is ready to greet the birth with connection and trust!
