Giving birth can be scary and painful, especially when you are having your first baby. I understand the importance of the birth experience and I aim to help make sure those memories are as positive as possible. Having me at your birth, as a part of your birth team, can ease your comfort and make your childbirth a positive experience.


I am a DONA trained and certified birth and postpartum doula. I have over 18 years experience with labor, delivery and postpartum care.


When I am your doula, my only job is to give you and your partner, continuous, supportive, physical and emotional care. I will help you relax, comfort you and give you the strength you need to labor and birth your baby.


You may believe that your partner will be by your side and help you to manage your comfort, however, the partner's experience is extremely emotional also. I will help your partner, help you, by keeping him/her calm and confident during the most intimate event in your life.


Hiring a doula can be expensive, however, studies have shown that having a doula present can help prevent labor and delivery complications, which can be extremely costly.


When you hire your doula, make sure that it is a good fit for you, your  partner and the doula. Make sure that she respects you, your wishes and gives the most up to date, evidence-based information that works with your birth preference. Your doula should make you feel strong and powerful. Trust your gut feeling.


I can be that doula!
