I have had the privilege of assisting families as they bring their babies into the world since 2005. I work with students in my childbirth classes and others who desire to have the support of an experienced doula at their birth, in the birth setting of their choice. I attend births in all of the area hospitals – in Monroe, Wayne, and Ontario counties – and at home. I have experience attending births with many of the physicians and midwives in our region.
As a doula, I support mothers and their partners with the goal of a safe, healthy, joyful birth experience for the entire family. This can mean different things for different mothers and in different circumstances, and I work to help my clients understand the full range of their options and assist them in getting needed information, whether that be by referring them to additional resources or by helping them know what questions to ask. During labor, I provide physical, emotional, and informational support. My services include one or more prenatal visits, phone support, continuous support during labor through the immediate postpartum period, and a follow up postpartum visit. It is my joy and passion to help make birth a beautiful, empowering experience for the families I serve.

I am excited to announce that I will be offering postpartum doula services beginning fall 2014. Please contact me for more information about postpartum doula services.
