It is my intention to encourage and support women and their families through the pre-natal, birthing, and postpartum period. I support you through your journey and I will help you to advocate for yourself.
With over 275 births attended, my experience constantly confirms my passion for empowering you through one of the most memorable journeys of your life; the birth of your child and becoming a mother. It’s your birth journey, I’m just here to help. I will help to facilitate a positive birthing experience. I will act as a liaison between you, your partner and your team. Whether you are birthing at a hospital, birth center or home, I keep your desires and goals in mind and help you to stay on track or re-group and come up with a new goal. I will lend my expertise and experience to those moments when you don’t think you can go on another breath, push or hour. I understand and will help you through all stages of labor and maintain a “birds-eye view” of the birth so you and your partner can stay in the moment. I can help translate what is happening to your body and your baby in words that you and your partner can understand.
As your doula I will provide continuous encouragement and support—both physical and emotional—throughout your labor and birth. This support extends beyond the mother’s needs and includes the partner’s as well. My expertise enables me to provide non-biased, evidence- and fact-based information that can assist you and your partner in making decisions regarding your care. I am 100% present to listen to you and your partner’s concerns, anxieties or fears without judgment and am there to facilitate and support the experience you want to have. I serve all of King and Snohomish counties.
