Need A Doula?

A doula is a member of your birthing team that provides information, support (physical and mental) and provides resources to make each step as smooth as possible

“Just as a woman's heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth."

—Virginia DiOrio

Your Voice Matters For the Birth Experience You Deserve


You're fierce, powerful and you are ready to take your next step to parenthood, heal from anything that's holding you back from accomplishing your goals, and confidently own your next level without constantly getting in your own way. However, we sometimes need a little extra help. 

Let’s get you the support you need, so you can have the birth experience you’ve been dreaming about. 


Whether you're in search of a birth doula, postpartum doula, or someone to facilitate a training or workshop, you’re in the right place.

I'll help you get the information you need to make the informed choices that will benefit you and your family and support you in your journey for the birth experience you deserve.
