Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work:

What led you to become a Doula?: When I got pregnant with my daughter I knew next to nothing about pregnancy, or childbirth. I had an amazing experience during both my pregnancy and labor that I knew I was hooked on being around pregnant individuals. I love talking about pregnancy and I want people to be informed about all the options they have, and hopefully help them have a birth experience that they can happily remember.

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

Well organized, reliable, kind, compassionate

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: I love the baby center app and what to expect apps and books.

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: I want to ask how their pregnancy was and what their birth experience was. Both of these can be very loaded questions, but I do believe that you can learn a lot from other people's pregnancy and birth experiences.

What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: Support and validation.

What is your favorite TV show or movie?: The Office or Bones!

What is your favorite place to vacation?: Visiting my Inlaws in PA!

What is your favorite food?: Mac & Cheese

What is your favorite way to spend a day off?: I love going to the children's museum and the farmers market!

Who lives in your house?: Currently, my daughter Ella and I. My husband is stationed in S. Korea.
