The decision to become a doula was an easy one for me. My whole life, I always wanted to be a mom. I was born with a deep desire to take care of and nurture other people. It took a lot longer than my husband and I had planned to make that dream come true. So we adopted our oldest two sons when they were 7 and 8 years old. Shortly after that, my first biological son was born. Sixteen months later, our second biological son was born. Four kids in two years. We certainly had our prayers answered! Having been given the gift of experiencing childbirth, it made me realize how strong a womans body really is. I also had some difficulty navigating the process on my own and had longed for a different story after my second birth. So becoming a doula felt right. Birth shouldn’t be scary and feared but rather embraced and enjoyed. My goal is to offer compassion, understanding, knowledge and evidence based advice during your birth journey. Support for the partner is important as well!
I look forward to hearing from you!
