Hello, and congratulations on your upcoming birth! I am passionate about helping families achieve the birth they desire. My goal as a doula is to help families feel supported, educated, and empowered. After having my own child at the Minnesota Birth Center in 2014, I began to understand the immense value of extra support during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I have learned that having more support does not mean less intimacy. I entered into the world of birth support as a postpartum doula and have loved supporting parents and their new babies. I was motivated to pursue training as a birth doula and certified lactation educator counselor. It is my belief that every family, and birthing person, should do what they feel is best for them during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I am passionate about providing unbiased, non-judgmental support for all types of families and all types of birth! Above all, I want the families I work with to own their story. I am excited for the opportunity to be a part of a team providing amazing support and care at the Minnesota Birth Center!
