About Me: I had both of my children in Germany where childbirth preparation courses, childbirth, and postpartum care are all covered by the healthcare system. After we moved back to America when talking with my friend Rachel about her childbirth experience, she said: "I felt very alone throughout the whole process, no one really told me anything to prepare me or help me cope with labor. My birth was a very hard experience for me, and although i want more children, It makes me very apprehensive to think about doing that again." Another friend of mine, Kim, said: "After i had my baby, everyone thought i should be so overjoyed but all i felt was exhausted and anxious. I never felt like i had anyone to talk to about it. I felt so alone." These talks and countless others like them inspired me to become a doula and try and change the birth and postpartum experience into a positive one and help women get the support they deserve.

My goal is to help women find their birthing voices and have all the information they need to make the right birthing choices for them and their past and their situation, whatever that birth may look like. Only when fully informed and carefully pondered can we make the choices that we can stand behind and never regret. No matter your birthing preferences, i would be honored to help support you along your journey.

I am a trained Curtis Method Hypnodoula and a trained CAPPA Postpartum Doula, and am working on becoming certified for both.

I hold a monthly Positive Birth Gathering in Utah County and a Birth Book Club. I love getting involved in my community and helping women prepare for and have a positive birth experience in any way I can.
