Birth takes so muscle and I am a massage therapist.
I have been a professional and active doula since 2003. I have attended over 400 births in fifteen different hospitals, three birth centers and many, many homes.
I am an active doula in the birth room. My goals are to keep you and your family as comfortable and as informed as possible. I want all of your physical and emotional needs met.I want to teach your birth partner to be me and learn all my moves to help their partner. I want you to know all of your options at every turn.
I have experience with all the facets of birth including transfers of care, high risk pregnancies, rainbow babies, inductions, gestational diabetes, hypertension, planned and unplanned c-sections, v-bacs and malpositioned babies and losses. I use my experience, my bodywork skills and my childbirth education for every birth I attend.
I am currently only taking out of hospital birthing clients. Should you need to transfer while in care or in labor I will follow you to your place of birth.
