Having a birth doula on your team can provide the support needed to help build your confidence, explore your options and clarify your choices, and make birth a positive experience.  I offer a free, no obligation, initial meeting so that you can find out how hiring me as your a doula will benefit you and your family, and to see if I might be the right doula for you.

 

"I think one of the best things we could do would be to help women/parents/families discover their own birth power, from within themselves. And to let them know it’s always been there, they just needed to tap into it."
