My passion for this work developed throughout my first pregnancy. I got the opportunity to navigate a complicated healthcare system and I couldn’t help but notice the lack of family-centered care. This miraculous process of bringing new life into the world had been reduced to an ailment complete with scans, tests, and brief appointments. I longed for connection, support, and guidance. I found those things and more in Midwifery lead care and Doula support.
I walked away from my births feeling confident, empowered, and excited to parent. I wanted to be apart of uplifting pregnant people through this sacred rite of passage.
As a Mother and a Birth professional I have an awareness of what this journey entails and I can better relate to my clients in that we are all in the same season of life. I received my Doula training and certification through Childbirth International, the only Doula certifying organization to receive accreditation with distinction from The American Nurses Credentialing Center. I am an Alumni of Birthing Advocacy Doula Trainings where I earned my Childbirth Educator certification. My training prepared me to combine my passion for birth work with education and practical skills. It equipped me to serve families of all identities, structures, and backgrounds. This journey is all about continued education, I learn something new from each family I support.
When I’m not geeking out about birth I enjoy stand-up comedy, a good murder mystery, karaoke, and spending time with my family. I love animals, the outdoors, and never pass up a chance to be in the sunshine. I believe birth is magical and in bringing new magic into the world you harness the ability to do incredible things. I hope to help you see how magical you are.
This is my Husband J. He is a Licensed Barber, lead vocalist in a Latin orchestra, and a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist. I am very excited that he has shown interest in my birth work and is willing to lend his talents to preparing my client’s Placentas with love and care.
The first family I supported was my own. I had the honor and plrivledge of supporting my Sister during the birth of my niece.
