Growing up in the Midwest I'm not sure I had ever even heard of the word doula, let alone know what one is or does. 

When I was pregnant we came to the Bay Area and I instantly knew that this area was where I wanted to raise my little one and start my family and my career. I am constantly reading and learning about the birthing process and found that the birth stories in my books greatly differed than that of the typical Lifetime movie. I have also found that birth can be orgasmic, not just through reading but through personal experience.

With the help of daily exercise, teas, meditations and my trusted doula at my side I had a two hour labor and a beautiful and healthy baby girl. This was the most raw and organic experience of my life and I have been passionate about birth ever since. I am excited to be a doula with such a wonderful, unique and dedicated team and to share my own experiences with Mama's to be.
