Postpartum Doula Profile

I am blessed to be the mom to two fantastic kids. My children make my life as beautiful an adventure as they do at keeping me on my toes. As a wife, I have the privilege of being married to a great guy, who not only puts up with my birth enthusiasm and but also my crazy on-call working hours.
My journey as a doula, in some ways, started with the love and wisdom of my mother. She taught me to believe in my own strength and abilities and to trust my instinct and my heart. With the birth of my daughter in 2012, her words truly impacted me in ways I had not expected. I realized that not only could my birth have been better but that all women deserve to have a birth where they take the lead in how their bodies bring their babies into this world. That knowledge weighed on me and with the upcoming birth of my son, in 2016, I decided to look into ways I could take the lead and that guided me to hiring a doula. Having a doula was so very beneficial and it changed the way I looked at birth and as a result launched me into a career of being doula, myself.
I became a DONA trained doula in 2017 and with my newly gained confidence and knowledge quickly started to attend births. I went on to complete more certifications, including but not limited to, The Matrona's Holistic Birth and Postpartum Certification, the Certified Lactation Consultant training (CLC) and a certification in creating and selling Breast Milk Jewelry.
