Doula Support

Birth Doula

Motherhood and Parenthood is a journey not meant to go alone and neither is birth. I’m here to walk your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey with you. After the birth of my two beautiful and very spunky kiddos, I fell in love with all things that surround motherhood and discovered the magic of a doula. So in 2016, I decided to branch out my photography business and started my formal training in becoming a doula.

As your doula, I am here to give you personalized and nonjudgmental support throughout your pregnancy, labor, and postpartum periods. It is my mission for you to feel educated, empowered, and supported both physically and emotionally so you can have a memorable and birth experience.

I have experience with hospital & home births, cesareans, VBAC, epidurals, IVF, pregnancy after loss, pregnancy after recovery. I am here to support all families and individuals.
