DOULAS AND MAMAS
So, you're pregnant. Congratulations! Have birth horror stories got you worried about getting this baby out? Do you wonder if it's possible to feel less pain in labor? Would you like to fall more in love with your partner? All of this and more is possible by adding a birth doula to your support team. Hop on over to the About page to learn more!
I believe that mothers are born on the same day as their babies. Birth is a rite of passage. Physiologically designed to be a visceral, lifelong memory. A time when women greatly benefit from being informed, empowered, and comforted. To be mothered, that they might mother. It is my desire to support you in the birth that you feel is best for you and your family. My goal is to serve you with information, physical comfort measures, and encouragement.
MOTHER THE MOTHER
New motherhood both delighted and overwhelmed me. It was during those early weeks postpartum, caring for my newborn, that the phrase “mother yourself” became a lifeline. I found great encouragement and wisdom from other mamas in my community, understanding that to mother well, we need support. (To get an inside look at my doula journey, you can read this blog post.)
