Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: Ever since I can remember my desire to be a mother was very strong. I was always playing baby dolls and babysat several families at a young age. I then worked at a church nursery in high school. After graduating High School, I became a live- in nanny for a year before college. I was able to be there for her birth and all her first year milestones. I then went to college to earn my degree in social work and minor on psychology. I spent time working as a social worker and then earning my masters in social work. I was a nanny to a premature baby and spent some time traveling with them as well. I worked with children and families in their homes and in school. Then after years of trying to conceive. We decided to decrease my hours as a psychotherapist. I continued to have a desire to care for babies and I found a family needing care. This family grew to four families by word of mouth. One of the families was 4 children. Twin premature babies and a 4 and 7 year old. So I quit being a therapist and focused on my families and how to make our own family. We were told they just don’t know why we were struggling to conceive. We tried clomid, acupuncture, chiropractor, diet change, a number of IUIs, two rounds of IVF before we became pregnant. We did hypnobirthing for our first child and it was really a wonderful experience. I see you mama. I understand if your road to motherhood was a long windy one. There is no right or wrong way to have a baby. I am here to support you on your journey however you got here.

What led you to become a Doula?: Shortly after giving birth a nurse helped me into a wheelchair and parked me facing a wall. Behind me nurses were weighing and foot printing my screaming newborn. I sat in pain feeling invisible and heart broken. I questioned if this is what motherhood would be like. I was so hurt that I couldn’t even see my new baby or be there to hold her hand and comfort her cries. Yet, I was unable to be assertive and felt weak in these new moments of motherhood. My mission is to make sure you are seen and heard, Mama.

What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:

Families have shared that I am warm and trusting. They speak about how I am observant and able to see what needs done. They have shared that they appreciate me keeping my scheduled appointments and having availability to be flexible. I have been told that I am attentive with care and have an ability to listen and be supportive.
