I received a bachelor's degree in Music Education with a minor in Spanish, but I became a birth doula after the birth of my second son (by birth, fifth by choice!). I have been fortunate to have had amazing birth experiences. I labored in my own way, and my children (all seven of them) were born into their father’s hands. I might dare to say I am a childbirth addict! I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as some of the most beautiful things about humanity. When a laboring person is supported, loved, valued, and heard, the birth process is a positive and empowering experience. A birth doula offers constant physical and emotional support, methods to cope with pain, as well as reassurance when things are normal, and help interpreting medical information when things are not. This benefits all members of the support team. Thus, the birther is EMPOWERED to make their own decisions, own their experience, and ultimately remember it in a positive way, no matter what obstacles may be encountered. I am proud to be a DONA-trained birth doula and offer support to families across the greater Oklahoma City area.
