Postpartum Doula - Placenta Encapsulation Specialist
My whole life I never felt like I had one true passion or goal career. After being pregnant with my first son and having an incredible and empowering labor and birth experience, it was as if a switch flipped and I instantly knew birth work was my calling. Once I saw how beautiful the whole process can really be, it saddened me to know not every birthing person has the knowledge or support I did. Not everyone comes out on the other side feeling as if they had the good experience they so deserve.
I feel it is so important to know that no birth is the same, not every birth goes exactly the way you plan it, and not everyone has the same idea of what their “perfect” birth would be. So my goal as a doula is to make sure every woman is informed and educated in her options, feels supported in her choices-whatever they may be, and feels incredibly confident and empowered when she is bringing her baby earth side.
Supporting families postpartum is some I love to do as well, and it is truly an honor to be allowed to be a part of such a special time in their lives. As a military spouse, I understand the value of having help during that adjustment period. They say it takes a village, and I will forever be grateful to be a part of yours!
In my free time I enjoy most spending time with my wonderful husband and my two sweet wild little boys (with another on the way)! I love doing yoga, being outside in nature, exploring new places and visiting family in our hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa.
