There is a secret that is being kept.
It is not that childbirth is painful it is that women are
In 2015 I decided to take my passion for child birth and make it my profession! This is the best decision I ever made.
I am committed to educating expecting parents and helping them to create the birth they want. In this amazing age of 'googling' it is so easy to get lost in all the information that is out there. My goal is to help you 'un-muddy the waters' and create a path that is right for you.
I have training in Rebozo, Microbirthing, Lactation basics, Spinning Babies, Labor Massage, Belly Binding and I'm completing my Aromatherapy & Lamaze certifications currently.
My core belief is that you know what is right for you. It is my role to help you define your path so that is it as smooth as possible.
The birthing person knows best!!
Modern medicine has bought us so much but there is nothing that will replace what is at a woman's core. Always remember that the body that made the baby knows how to bring the baby in the world.
I believe that the biggest mistake we make in maternity care and labor & delivery is the lack of the presence of the doula. The person who knows what birth looks like, sounds like and never leaves your side. Your person who is there for you to tell you it is OK or give you advice or ideas on what can make the process easier. Your nurse comes and goes and for most laboring moms, it can be so challenging to feel safe and supported especially during a nurse shift change. Having a doula there with you the entire time to bridge that gap, to hold your hand or rub your back makes more of a difference then can be put in words.
I also believe that the birthing person needs to feel calm and centered to allow this process to flow through them. It is crucial that there is someone who is there holding the space for them from the start to the finish. The nursing staff is not able to provide this but a qualified doula can.
Birth work is my passion and I am glad to be sharing that with you!
