About Me

My greatest joy is being a wife to my high school sweetheart of 29 years and a mother to 2 wonderful girls. Once I decided to be a doula I discovered my third greatest joy in life, supporting and teaching other mothers as they give life to their new baby. When I'm not in a labor support room, I enjoy my garden, raising chickens, and fostering kittens.

How it works & what's included

  • Interview Meeting: I’m excited to meet with you in your home or over coffee at a convenient location to get to know your birth needs and how I can best serve you. I’m pleased to offer this free of charge.

  • Moving Forward: Once you establish we are a good fit, I require a $500 deposit due at contract signing. The remaining $500 is due 2 weeks prior to estimated due date. I can discuss payment plans if needed. I accept cash or check.

  • Birth Plan: Our second meeting focuses on your birth plan, how you imagine your experience, and outlining the most important elements to you. We will go through steps to ensure you understand your options and feel confident.

  • Preparing: I am happy to offer stretches recommended by the Spinning Babies method, partner Rebozo scarf work, and calming techniques to help as you move into the more uncomfortable 3rd trimester.
  • On Call: I will be on call for you any day or time you are needing help or have questions. I will typically check in with you via text every few weeks to see how your progressing. Many clients find it reassuring to text me with questions about a new feeling, morning sickness reappearing in the 3rd trimester, or a fussy newborn! *

  • Labor: I'll be there for you before, during and after labor. I will arrive when you are ready, and provide you with at least three numbers to be able to contact me. When the time is right and you're ready, I will dismiss myself so you and your family can spend time together. 

  •  Postpartum: I offer 1-2 postpartum visits depending on your needs and schedule. I will check in on you and baby within the first week after arriving home and again a few weeks after that. I will be happy to answer questions about breastfeeding and postpartum depression as well.

*I’m happy to share my experiences with you and what my clients have found helpful in the past, but my advice should never replace that of a Medical Professional. If you think/feel you or your baby is in trouble please call 911.
In hiring a doula, you understand that she is not medically trained and does not guarantee any specific birth outcome.
