Preparing to give birth is a time filled with questions and choices. As your birth doula, I am a sounding board for you and your growing family. Together we will discuss your hopes for your experience, consider your options, and craft an outline for your birth preferences. We will meet twice prenatally, brainstorm together, making sure you feel connected and supported. I am available throughout your pregnancy for text, email, and phone support as needed. At 38 weeks, your number gets a special, obnoxious, blasting ringtone in my phone and I'm on-call 24 hours, ready when you are!
In labor, my role will be to support balancing the preferences outlined prenatally with the demands of the present moment. In birth, as in life, things rarely go exactly as planned. It's my job to help your birth team work together to honor your preferences, keep you informed, and offer support to you and your family as it grows.
