I started birth work before I even knew what it was, supporting several friends during the birth of their children. Once all my little ones were in school full time I took the opportunity to pursue birth work as a full-time profession.
I am a Birth, Postpartum and Bereavement Doula as well as Our Baby Class instructor, Belly binding specialist, and certified Lactation Counselor (CLC). A nurturer at heart starting as a teen working with disabled children, and later as an emergency medical technician providing emergency services.
As a mother, I know that each birth and every child brings new adjustments. I encourage parents to trust their instinct and make their own informed decisions. We all need a village of support as we find our way during pregnancy and parenthood. The many tips and tricks offered by an experienced go-to person will help you adapt to your new role.
I consider myself truly lucky to be able to do what I love and love what I do. Helping families build strong bonds as a birth worker and supporting couples as they become a family. Providing comfort and confidence as each day brings new challenge and helping ease the transition to parenthood and they're new normal.
