|About||birth & postpartum doula serving families in Franklin County, PA & Washington County, MD through childbirth education, physical & emotional support, and postpartum transition|
In 2013, I supported my cousin through much of her pregnancy and postpartum, and though I didn't realize it at the time, that experience sparked my passion for birth work. Late in 2015, I came across the term "doula" and was surprised to find it felt like a perfect fit! Since completing my certification, serving several clients, and welcoming my own little one to the world, my heart for birth work only grew.
I believe that pregnancy and birth are natural parts of life. Women are far stronger and more capable than they know or give themselves credit for and a woman should be allowed to direct her birth. However, I also believe that birth is just one part of a whole and that the best experience can be gained when pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period are all treated as equally important. Most of all, I believe that being a part of a family’s birth experience is both an immense blessing and an extraordinary privilege!
