From a very early age I have always loved everything pregnancy, birth and newborn related. There is always such a magic attached to knowing a new life will be joining the world soon and the joy that family will experience. Beginning in 2008, I have been beyond blessed to welcome four happy and healthy little boys into this world! I've experience both hospital and home births, with and without pain relief, with and without the support of a doula. I bring with me a wealth of personal experience and an intimate knowing of how a woman feels in the throws of labour. Having someone there by your side who can help you advocate for your self and baby is essential!
I decided to become a doula after the birth of my fourth son. His birth was attended by a doula and having her here was a source of irreplaceable support for both my husband and I. I wanted to be that person for other women. I have always loved serving others and felt becoming a doula was the perfect blend between the birth world I love so much and caring for others in such an intimate time in their life. I'm dedicated to continuing my education in the doula profession and am always looking for new ways to expand my services I can offer to parents and their babies.
Outside the birth world, I homeschool my four active and energetic boys, volunteer within our church's children's ministry and channelling my inner grandma by learning to quilt!
