Childbirth is an experience that a mother will remember for the rest of her life. Childbirth is a time to nurture the mother. A time to help her feel safe and loved. A time to mother the mother. I believe in listening to the mother and her partner and doing the best that I can to address their wishes and their fears. I provide them the information so that they can educate themselves and make informed decisions for their childbirth.

I have had Birth Doula training through Doulas of North America (DONA). In April 2005, I attended a Midwifery Skills workshop through our local Midwives. In May 2005, I had Advanced Doula training through Childbirth International (CBI). I am currently studying for my Diploma of Childbirth Education through CBI.

In addition to my training, I have attended several births, both in-hospital and home births. I also draw on my own personal experiences with the births of my four children. I view childbirth as one of the few miracles that we are able to experience in our lifetime. It is such an honor for me to be a witness to your miracle.
