Your birth can be a defining moment in your life. It can be extremely empowering and one of your greatest teachers. In the book, The Call of the Wild, Jack London captures Buck's experience of connecting to his lost instinct so beautifully: "He was sounding the deeps of his nature, and of the parts of his nature that were deeper than he, going back into the Womb of Time." Childbirth is perhaps the only event that truly connects us to our instinctual selves and it transforms us, turning us into mothers.
I began working with families as a doula in 2007. Throughout this time I've cultivated a wealth of knowledge and experience that I share with my clients so they can have the best possible birth experience, no matter what unfolds along the journey. Over the years, I've discovered that supporting women through childbirth is much less about what I can bring to the birth and much more about guiding the mother to tap into her intuition and find the strength inside herself. I am there to support you with information and comfort measures and to guide you to tap into your strength, find your voice, give birth instinctually, and make empowered decisions during the process.
