I have worked in women's health for many years and have always been fascinated with pregnancy and birth. After many years as a childcare provider for newborns and infants, I made the change to become a doula. My choice was solidified after the birth of my niece - seeing how amazing and powerful my sister was. I am elated to devote my time supporting and encouraging mothers and families as they prepare to welcome a new member to their family.
I hold a Bachelors degree from the University of Maryland in Behavioral and Community Health. I am a Certified Birth Doula through DONA International and am a certified HypnoBirthing Doula. In addition, I provide postpartum support and teach childbirth education
As a doula, I aim to guide you through labor and birth through providing a calm, supportive, and encouraging environment using methods of HypnoBirthing. Learned breathing techniques along with visualizations and imagery aid in guiding the mind and body to relax, building confidence, and releasing tension. This leads to a more peaceful and carefree birth experience.
