Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: Raising two children, and supporting many family members.

What led you to become a Doula?: Having a baby of my own and not knowing the first thing to do; they don't come with a booklet. Being alone was the hardest, if only I had another body there just for back up would have been amazing.

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

That I am kind and patient.

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: Kellymom.com, What to Expect When You're Expecting and What to Expect the First Year

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: Does she have any help at home. She needs me!

What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: Lots of support and reassurance.

What is your favorite TV show or movie?: 2 Broke Girls, Big Bang Theory and Mom. My favorite movie would be Narnia.

What is your favorite place to vacation?: Disney!

What is your favorite food?: Eggs Benedict

What is your favorite way to spend a day off?: Going to the movies or on a nice day going to the beach.

Who lives in your house?: My husband Kevin, two girls and 7 rescue dogs.
