BIRTH SUPPORT

Unbiased, compassionate care for your birth.

Years of experience supporting birth and caring for women has taught me a few things.

Birth carries with it the power to transform. 

There's a reason people love to share birth stories. Positive or negative, the experience of bringing life to the world has the power to shake you to your very core. It's a day we remember. Maybe you're approaching your birth with excitement or possibly with some apprehension and fear. More than just a means to get a baby, birth is an opportunity for women and their partners to face those feelings, access strength, and leave feeling changed for the better. 

Birthing people deserve compassionate care. 

The details of this monumental day will fade over time. You might forget times, the name of your nurse, or exactly how long was it that you spent laboring in the shower. But what you will certainly carry with you forever is the remembrance of how you were cared for. It's my goal for every woman to look back on the day she birthed and remember feeling supported, safe, and empowered. Having a doula can make the difference, and it's why I love what I do. 

Birth doula support is for everyone.

Maybe you're not sure if you'll want the epidural or not. Maybe you're planning a homebirth. Maybe your first birth experience didn't go as planned, and you want things to look different this time around. I believe that women birth best when it is on their own terms, and that they deserve the autonomy, respect, and informed support to do so. As your birth doula, I come alongside you to support YOUR goals. Through prenatal visits, email & text support throughout pregnancy, continuous care for you and your partner through your labor, and a postpartum visit, you're given the support you need to proceed into parenthood with confidence. 

Birth is a journey & you don't have to walk it alone.
