I am fascinated and inspired by the entire birth process and the physiological changes experienced throughout each unique pregnancy. I believe birth is a natural process that your body was perfectly designed to experience. My desire is to support you in a way that allows and encourages you to achieve your goals and desires for birth, whatever they may be. I also believe that postpartum, the fourth trimester, is as critical as any prenatal trimester. I am passionate about nurturing and creating a space for mom, baby and family.
As a Labor and Postpartum doula, I want to support you informationally, offering evidence based research to help you make informed decisions throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. My support is also of a physical nature, serving you during labor and postpartum, and also giving unconditional, unbiased emotional support. I am a patient and sensitive listener. I will match my care to your goals and desires.
I have lived in the surrounding Portland area most of my life and currently live in West Linn with my husband, 3 daughters and 2 dogs. When I am not doing birth work I enjoy hanging out with my family (my all-time favorite), being around friends, traveling, eating yummy food, playing golf (which needs a lot of improvement), and reading.
My goal is to inform you about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, empower you in your choices, and support you in your birthing and parenting goals.
I look forward to meeting you!
