Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: After 14 years of caring for Moms and babies, it was important to me to make sure that birthing persons can feel supported in whatever birth they choose. Webster certification and Spinning Babies workshops exposed me to an entire other world that is new to this area.
What led you to become a Doula?: I have had 3 deliveries that were not ideal and did not meet my expectations for bringing life onto this planet. It is my passion to advocate for birthing people and their partners.

Enjoyed seeing everyone in the office and made to feel welcome and cared about. Thanks for a good first visit.
