Dads and partner's can play such an important part in the birthing process.In my childbirth education classes and in my doula work I help find the integral role the partner can participate in. For every couple there is a way.

It may be comforting the mom in labor but it can be months ahead by giving the mother a little extra help, consideration and attention. Pregnancy and the childbirth is a family journey with it's blessings and a few challenges. I will help find the best way for you both.

Over the years there have been some press and media coverage of my work and the work of others in the Doula field.

I feel sharing it helps new mothers understand that Doulas and Midwives have been around for centuries and although there are coming back into popularity again people like us have always been here for you.
