What is a Doula?

As a doula, I support women in labor to help ensure a safe, satisfying birth experience. The support I provide is to encourage women to trust in their bodies and the birth process. I will accompany you and your partner in labor. I will draw on my knowledge and experience as a doula and a mother to provide emotional support, physical comfort, and if need be, communication with the medical staff to make sure that you have all the information that you need to make informed decisions.

I provide breathing exercises, positioning and other techniques of comfort to help the labor progress.

I believe that birth is sacred, and should be treated with love, respect and knowledge. I encourage women to be strong and listen to their bodies while doing the dance of labor.

I will maintain confidentiality of all details relating to you, your pregnancy, and birth. I am independent and self-employed. As your doula, I am working for you, and not your caregiver or hospital.

As a doula, I DO NOT perform any clinical assessments - I am here to provide physical comfort and support

A Little Bit About Me

I’m a Christian, a wife, and a mother of two children. During each of my labors I had amazing support from the doulas that my husband and I chose and I could not have gotten through either of my labors without their constant support. Because of them and my passion for birth I decided to become a doula. I completed my training with toLabor in the fall of 2013 and I received my certification with toLabor in the fall of 2014.

My hope is that parents are able to fully experience the birth of their babies. Meeting your new baby is a moment you will hold onto forever - a joyous moment unlike any other. I am honored for you to invite me into this space. My desire is for you to have a positive birthing experience where you can trust in your body and the process of birth, and are surrounded by support, understanding, and love.
