I am a wife of 16 years to my husband and mother to five beautiful children in my arms. We have also experienced loss in pregnancy and know that road too well. I've counseled many women and men through their time of loss, too.
It was our experiences in pregnancy and having natural births that led me to study childbirth education and become a certified childbirth educator, as well as a birth doula (a support person for women and partners at their births). I've had the privilege of guiding over 300 women and families through their own journeys in pregnancy and birth. I look forward to walking alongside of you and providing the confidence, knowledge and support you need to make your birth your own!
