"I am a Certified Birth Doula through Birth Arts International. I have more than nine years of experience, during which I have attended more than 250 births. I am experienced and comfortable in supporting unmedicated birth, birth with epidural, cesarean birth, and birth in all settings (home, birth center, and hospital). I also have experience with VBACs, VBA2C, multiples, breech birth, induction, etc. As many things in pregnancy and birth are unforeseeable, I want to assure you that, whatever your birth plan and however your birth ends up, I will be there to support you.
I am on call 24/7 for your birth from the time I receive your signed contract and initial payment.
I am available to support and assist you from active labor at home throughout the entire birth process.
If you are giving birth outside your home, I will assist in the transition to the hospital or birth center. Then I am with you 100%.
During your labor, I am available to do whatever is helpful to you (and your partner), whether it is last-minute preparation, suggesting a bath or shower, massaging you, doing some footwork/reflexology or acupressure, suggesting new positions or movement to keep you as comfortable as possible, etc.
If desired, I can take photos of labor, birth, and the early postpartum.
My goal is to foster a calm, reassuring, and supportive setting for your birth experience."
