I started birth work before I even knew what it was, supporting several friend 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 Councilor (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 of 6 I know that each birth and every child brings new adjustments. I encourages 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 considers 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 their new normal.
