From the beginning of time women have supported women in the birth of their children. As a Doula, I bring my experience and knowledge of birth to assist you in yours.  I provide continuous support to mothers and families throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum.

All birthing mothers benefit from having a Doula present at their birth. Medicated, unmedicated, Cesarean section, at a hospital, birth center, and home. Not only do mothers benefit, so do their partners. It is my goal to help connect birthing parents in the most exciting moments of their lives.


By guiding your partner to support you, you will remember them as being right there with you, in the moment with you, and coming away from your birth with an entirely new connection to each other. Your partner will see you with new eyes, the woman who overcomes fear, who brings your child into this world, as a mother capable of anything. It is my honor to witness parents be born through the birth of their child. 

My Story

I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things we experience as human beings. Through my training and personal experience in childbirth, I bring a wealth of knowledge and practical ability to support families in achieving the birth that they desire. My three children are each so incredibly different, as were their births! What I hoped for during each birth also varied greatly, and my perspective of birth has grown tremendously. I truly believe that this combination of knowledge and experience allows me to support your birth with compassion and heart.
