Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: After becoming a mother and going through the pregnancy and birth process twice with completely different experiences, it empowered me to do more.

I am caring and have a compassionate heart.

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: The book's; Fearless Birthing-Clear Your Fears for a Positive Birth by Alexia Leachman, The Breastfeeding Book: Everything You Need to Know About Nursing Your Child from Birth Through Weaning by Martha Sears, Guilt Free Bottle Feeding by Madeleine Morris, and, The Fourth Trimester: A Postpartum Guide to Healing Your Body, Balancing Your Emotions, and Restoring Your Vitality by Kimberly Ann Johnson.
