Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: Of course, having my own children, and working as a nanny, daycare centers, and just simply spending time with friends with young children.

What led you to become a Doula?: I've always loved babies and children, and have been around them all of my life as a nanny, nursery school teacher, worked in daycares, etc. But it is when I had my own children back to back, (1 year apart) I realized how much I myself needed support as a new mother, and how valuable that was. A dear friend came over to my home to help me with the transition. She did everything a doula would do, without even realizing it! It was inspiring. So I knew I would do this work one day!

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

I am warm and friendly, soothing voice and a very calming person.

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: *

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: I really miss those times in my own life!

What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: My non-judgement support, and experience in knowing what they are going through.

What is your favorite TV show or movie?: Married At First Site and Naked and Afraid. Too many movies to list!

What is your favorite place to vacation?: New York

What is your favorite food?: Italian

What is your favorite way to spend a day off?: With my family, relaxing.

Who lives in your house?: My husband, and two sons, ages 9 and 10.
