Why did I become a doula? My two births remain the most exhilarating, challenging, empowering, and joyful experiences of my life. Alas, two boys is enough for our family, so now I experience birth from “the other side.”
As a doula, I help families feel empowered and informed about their choices. I support my clients’ wishes, whether it is for a hospital, birth center, or home birth, and whatever kind of pain management you desire. I don’t have an agenda other than helping you have the birth experience that you hope for.
In addition to being a doula I am a violinist and orchestra teacher. During the school year my life is filled with music and teaching and in the summer I am involved in birth work. For now, that means my clients all have summer due dates!
