I have been attending births since 2015 and am currently working towards my DONA certification.
I am a mother of 4 children who's births were all very different. My first child was an emergency Cesarean section. My second child was a medicated hospital birth that left me feeling very incapable of birthing. My third child, I hired a Doula and was able to have a natural hospital birth. This led me feeling empowered enough to have a homebirth with my fourth child, one that included a Doula as well.
My wish for every pregnant woman is that she would know that the decisions she makes towards birth are all her and her partners. That she would not be pressured into a birth situation not of her choice. I believe the birth of your child is the most sacred moment and the beginning of your relationship with your child should be as you wish.
As your doula, I am present to provide information and support prenatally and during labor. I am at a birth solely to provide support to the laboring mother and her partner.
Prior to birth, we meet to discuss your birth care plan, and concerns your may have and to share in your excitement!
