I am a birth doula and registered nurse. Although I currently work in same day surgery for the nice schedule, I have also been a labor and delivery nurse. I love being able to help women who want unmedicated hospital births. I know very well how to work with nurses and doctors since I am one! My goal is to help you achieve the birth you want and give you outstanding education so that you can make informed decisions.

I meet with the parent(s) and we go over an in depth birth plan. Here I ask a lot of questions about the ideal birth and what that would look like. I write it all down and bring it to the birth with me so I can take care of as many of those details as possible. Next I give a class going over different birthing techniques, stages of labor, when to go to the hospital, and basic breastfeeding. When parent(s) want me there for the labor I come. Some meet me at the hospital and some I go to their house beforehand. I am there throughout the whole labor and delivery (taking care of birth plan details, providing comfort measures, counter-pressure, etc.) and then after helping with the first feed I usually leave you to spend some time alone with the baby!
