My Philosophy

I believe that childbirth is a normal, natural, and healthy experience. Every woman is capable of a positive birth experience. Every woman deserves to have information and education in order to make informed choices and decisions about and throughout labour and delivery. As a doula, I wish to honor the birth choices that you and your partner have made. I believe that childbirth is truly a transformative experience for both mother and father. I bring compassion, knowledge, understanding, strength, and a calming presence to birth. I believe that fathers and doulas work together to provide total emotional, physical, and psychological support to the laboring mother.
