A little about me
My passion, as your doula, is to help you achieve your best possible birth. In the process, help you feel confident throughout your pregnancy and birthing experience. While you labor, you can depend on me to continually support you physically, comfort and encourage you emotionally while keeping you well informed about your progress; reminding you that you CAN do it.
Everything in my life has brought me here. Here to benefit you.
Becoming a doula is a natural flow of who I have been shaping into since childhood. Honestly, it is who God created to be. Supporting and serving women is my earthly passion. For several years, I have been mentoring girls from adolescence to young adults; from various backgrounds. Consequently, I’ve had the honor of accompanying some of them childbirth. What a privilege to walk with a woman into motherhood!
My back story:
Since childhood, being a wife and mother is who I longed to be. In the meantime, I had this infinity toward nurturing and caring for a variety of animals. Everything needed a mother. Of course, that mother was me. Finally, by the age of 19 my longing became reality. For over 31 years I have enjoyed the title of wife and mother. And now the most precious title, “Grammy”.
Health and Fitness are important to me. My quest for healthy living became my goal when one of my children showed signs of what would have been labeled “ADD”. Medication was not the route I thought best for our family. For this reason, I devoured (no pun intended) books on nutrition and natural medicine. I researched many topics for many hours which thankfully led to successfully helping my child.
Through the years, I have tried many forms of exercise. Recently, I added cross-fit to the list. While I still enjoy hiking and peaceful nature trails, there is something satisfying about an intense workout!
In Conclusion, how can my life experience benefit you in labor and birth?
You will have my loyalty and compassionate care. I can provide you with evidence based information from research. You can have a peace-filled room with steadfast strength as you need it.
Enough about me, I’d rather learn about you!
