I am a mother, wife and advocate.

My Story

I am a mom of 4, I have been through a c section, 2 vbacs with their own obstacles, and a healing homebirth. I have breastfed all my kids all at different stages and with different obstacles of their own. All of my experiences as well as educational background give me the knowledge to be able to help moms and understand first hand what they may need most. My goal is to help mom in whatever is needed for her journey. In my role as a certified Doula, Lactation Counselor, and Placenta Specialist, I offer support to women and their partners before, during and after childbirth. My role is to help facilitate safe, positive and empowering birthing experiences by offering the information, emotional support and physical support needed during this time.
