I became pregnant in 2005 and at first, didn't give a single thought to how I would like to birth my baby. A trusted friend and midwife got me thinking about all the options. She suggested I have the baby naturally.
This was such a foreign concept to me, as natural childbirth does not seem to be very common anymore in our society. My husband and I signed up for a 12 week Bradley Course. This childbirth class made all the difference to me. Instead of relying on pain medication, I was equipped with knowledge of the birthing process and the tools I could use during labor and delivery.
Knowledge drives out fear, and with the help of my husband, I was able to successfully deliver all four of my babies without any pain medication- three in the hospital and one at home with a midwife.
The sense of fulfillment I got from these experiences was amazing and made me want to empower other women desiring to have a similar experience.
Women just like you.
As a doula (ancient Greek word meaning "woman who serves"), I will walk you through every step of your maternity experience. My goal is to provide expectant women with gentle, loving, and educated counsel that stems from a natural and well-balanced approach to pregnancy/labor and delivery.
