First pregnancy or a fifth, each journey is as unique as the child.

Whether you believe in God, the Divine Spirit of Mother Nature, the fact remains the same: We have been blessed with everything we need to carry, birth and care for our child. I believe every mother deserves to have a safe, possitive and empowering birth experience. Choosing how your baby comes into the world is sacred. It should be a decision made with love and confidence and trust, not fear or resignation to the mainstream. This experience is way too important. As a birth doula, I offer physical, emotional and educational support  before, during and after childbirth and help you find the path that feels best for you.

 

My focus is on you-the mother. Because when you have the proper support to feel happy and healthy, it's much easier to be the best version of yourself. And most important, your baby will be brought into this world in a happier and healthier way. In our prenatal visits we discuss your birth goals, preferences, and comfort techniques. During labor and birth, I am by your side with positive energy, judgement-free support, and as your advocate. When baby is born, I am here to ease you into motherhood.

Studies have shown that women who have a birth doula present during labor and childbirth have shorter labors, are less likely to request pain medications, are less likely to have emergency cesareans sections and are more likely to be satisfied with their birth experience.

A new mother's female community took care of household chores, allowing the mother uninterrupted rest, healing, and bonding time with her baby. Sadly this postpartum ritual is a stark contrast to the back-to-business culture of today, where a new mother is expected to quickly bounce back to her per-pregnancy body, mind and busy schedule. It is my goal to hold space for you during this transition and help navigate new challenges and emotions as they rise.


Studies have shown that women who have social support during the postpartum period tend to have less postpartum depression, breastfeed for a longer duration and make a better adjustment to parenthood overall.
