Women supporting other women through labor is an ageless tradition common to all cultures...
ABOUT ME: My passion is maternal child health. My goal is to help healthy moms birth healthy babies. I am a new graduate registered nurse. I'm trained as a Doula/ Birth Assistant by Association of Labor Assistant and Childbirth Educators (ALACE). I have attended 263 births in hospital, birth center, and home settings. I am a professional care provider who understands and trusts the process of birth, who respects it's physical and emotional aspects as well as it's transcendent and sacred aspects, and who facilitates the birth experience for parents, baby, and primary care providers.
MY SERVICES: I provide continuous, uninterrupted care for you and your partner during labor and birth. I help you participate fully in your experience by offering physical and emotional support, information about the birth process, and available technology and alternatives. I typically meet with you prenatally: once a month during 2nd trimester, then twice a month during 3rd trimester. I will go to your home in early labor. Then I accompany you throughout labor and delivery, in the setting of your choice. I also do follow-up visits during the important early postpartum period.
FEES: To be determined. Depends on services rendered.
I am very passionate about what I do. I really really want to make YOUR birth YOURS! And I want to make it the best experience it can be! Please email me if this is something that you are interested in.
