About Me: I am a trained birth doula through Doulas of North America (DONA), certified hypno-doula through Hypnobabies and a birth/newborn photographer with a decade of photography experience. Being a doula is heart work.  Soul work.  I will not hesitate to get into the trenches with you during your pregnancy and birth as I combine my training and experience with heart and soul. I support my clients through compassionate, intuitive, empowering care as they bring their babies into their arms.  My goal is to help all parents birth their babies how and where they choose giving them the respect and information necessary to make informed decisions.  I would love all women to be able to look back on every raw, gritty, soul searching moment of their births with nothing but cherished memories. 

In addition to my doula training I have taken courses in the Bradley Method, Hypnobabies & have a BS in Behavioral Science & Health from the University of Utah. I have gained valuable experience through my own 7 pregnancies and 6 births that allows me to support you in intuitive and compassionate ways. I understand the financial aspect of hiring a doula and offer payment plans to accommodate people from all walks of life. Discounts for returning clients and students. Please visit my website for more details and to check out my photography services. The support I offer your growing family includes:

*One prenatal visit (approx 1.5 - 2 hours) to discuss/establish birth plan, labor preferences, pregnancy history, and birth announcement (if applicable)
*Unlimited text/email support during pregnancy and postpartum period. I encourage you to feel comfortable asking me anything.
*On call at 38 weeks until birth
*Prenatal workbook to help you prepare for your birth and understand pregnancy and the birth process
*During birth I will offer any support you need including, but not limited to, massage, counter pressure, breathing coaching, emotional encouragement, visualization, and birth partner support
*I will stay with you for 1-2 hours after your birth to make sure you are comfortable, stable and baby is nursing well
*One postpartum visit to discuss birth, answer any questions and check up on nursing 

I have been a sponsor in a local 12 step program for survivors of abuse/trauma for 3 years and find joy in helping my sponsees find their peace and purpose. It is powerful to watch women find their inner strength. We are all sacred and precious and worthy of so much love.
