I value the scientific aspect of life and at the same time am in awe of the miraculous ability of our bodies. I blend that into my doula practice by offering a compassionate, empathetic demeanor backed with multiple resources and research to help educate and inform my clients for any questions that may arise. My philosophy on birth is that as long as the birthing family feels encouraged, supported and well cared for than I am doing my job well. I pass no judgement on whether you want an out of hospital water birth, an epidural in hospital or a planned cesarean birth. Knowing that I can support you in your birth journey, however that may look, and you can look back feeling empowered and satisfied with how you brought your baby into this world, brings me the greatest joy.
