I have been a DONA trained doula for the past two years. I am happily married to my husband, Bobby and we have a daughter named Aleigha, and a son named Lachlan. I had a c-section with Aleigha, and Lachlan was born via HBAC (home birth after cesarean). Both of my birth experiences were very different and were instrumental in my decision to become a doula; they created a passion in me for helping women and their families during the birth of their babies!
I had always been fascinated with birth and child development, and at a young age, had the privilege of witnessing beautiful babies being born. It was when I was pregnant with my daughter in 2011 that the fascination became even more important to me,
and I surrounded myself with information about childbirth, breastfeeding, prenatal yoga, etc. You name it, I wanted to know about it! I always wish that I had a doula at my first birth and now realize how priceless a doulas' presence can be when you are in the midst of such a special, life-changing experience. I believe that birth is natural and what our bodies were uniquely designed to do.
It is very important to me that every woman has the opportunity to have the birth experience that they want, and therefore is my hope to give all of the encouragement and support that a woman needs in order to achieve that. It is such an honor and a privilege to be a doula, and I am so excited to be a part of this journey!
