I have been fascinated by the birth process since I was eleven years old, though I did not go through the process myself until a bit later! Raising my two daughters, who are only 16 months apart, has been the most fulfilling and rewarding thing I’ve ever done, but it’s not always easy. I was diagnosed with cancer during my first pregnancy, and without the support of my husband, family, and friends, I would not be the (mostly) calm, confident, mama I am today.
I have been providing support to families since 2011. I am trained as a Birthing From Within childbirth and birth art educator and doula. Since 2013 I have been training (IPPA) and serving families during their postpartum period. Whether it be placenta encapsulation, belly binding, infant massage, breastfeeding or postpartum doula services, I cater to your needs. My most current training, in February 2020, is as a Newborn Care Specialist. My desire is to create a plan for the needs of your growing family.
