Pregnancy and childbirth are natural and normal part of living. As women, we have a right to be emotionally and physically supported during this special time. As a doula, my purpose is to provide that support. I do not replace the support of loved ones, rather I help them work together to better support, you, the laboring mother. When I’m not a doula, I’m a research assistant in a children’s emergency department, a nanny, and a wife. I am trained through DONA International and working towards certification.
