I was certified through DONA International between June 2011 and June 2014 and have been attending births since February 2010. I am also a member of Operation Special Delivery, which is a program that supplies military wives whose spouses are overseas with a doula in place of their spouse, all at no charge to the mother-to-be.
I have three young children. My first daughter was born in a hospital, the second in a birth center and my third, a son, was born in my home. I believe that my experience in all settings, as well as my experience in multiple birth settings as a doula and student midwife, will help me to understand each situation better, and I will be more capable of meeting your needs.
Supporting women leading up to, during and after labor and childbirth is the most rewarding experience I have found, outside of being a wife and mother. I hope that my knowledge and experience will help more pregnant women to have the birth they desire.
I recently became an Independent Product Consultant for doTERRA Essential Oils! Which means I can bring the best in essential oils to your birth, optimizing your care and comfort. Come visit my virtual office for more information about this fantastic company and all it has to offer.
