“Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.” Ina May Gaskin
Thank you for visiting! I am a Certified Professional Birth and Postpartum Doula through ToLabor, an IPPA-trained Placenta Specialist, and a trained Bereavement Doula with Stillbirthday.
Imagine feeling prepared and supported as you approach your due date. Picture your birth day, lovingly surrounded by a birth team completely focused on you and your baby, and knowing that your partner is equipped with many strategies to be involved and keep you calm and comfortable as you labor.
My passion is to share knowledge and options about birth and postpartum with growing families. I believe that the process of birth and the sacred postpartum time deserve equal amounts of thought and preparation. There is no “one right way” to approach your birth. I offer education and non-judgmental support to families desiring home, hospital or birth center births. (For hospital births, I offer support to clients who have medicated births, natural births, VBAC, cesareans, and inductions). I also strive to enable partners to be as involved as possible by teaching them many techniques they can use to keep the laboring mother calm, comfortable and feeling emotionally & physically supported.
I serve women and their families in New Castle County Delaware, the Philadelphia Area, South Jersey, and Northern Maryland.
