My love of all things birth started very young. Growing up as a daughter of a lactation consultant, I knew I wanted to help moms on their unique journey to motherhood. As a labor doula, my goal is to help mothers and their families achieve the best birth experience they can, and provide support, comfort, and reassurance along the way.
Every mom (and dad!) has unique needs when adjusting to the new dynamic of bringing their baby home, and as a postpartum doula I strive to make that transition as easy as possible for everyone. I like to think of myself as the friend you need to be there to help you learn the ropes of caring for your baby, give you the chance for a little rest and relaxation, and help you find the happy balance in your “new normal”.
My happy place is at home with my loving husband, our awesome daughter and stepdaughter, sweet blind dog and snuggly cat. When we’re not working on projects around the house, I enjoy hiking, reading a good thriller, puzzles, and working on craft projects.
