Dads and partner's 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 unique way.

Pregnancy and the childbirth is a family journey with its blessings and a few challenges. I want to help you find the best way for you both.

Over the years there has 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. Although they are coming back into popularity again people like us have always been here for you.
