Serving Nashville and Greater Middle TN
During my growing up years, birth was a normal event. As my friends began having their babies, however, this was not their experience. Interventions and trauma were more likely to be their experience. Through their birth stories, I became aware of the need for compassionate support and care for mothers and mothers-to-be. Becoming a doula was a natural outflow.
In 2010, I attended a DONA, Int. doula training. Since that time, I have attended births in and out of hospitals in the United States and Uganda supporting women during pregnancy, labor, birth, and throughout their postpartum transition. I especially enjoy supporting couples as they work together during birth and caring for their new baby.
My experience includes supporting:
- first time mothers
- mothers of many
- unmedicated births
- medicated births
- high risk pregnancies
- VBAC mothers
- single mothers
- hospital, birth center, and home births
Services I provide:
I have worked with women in crisis pregnancy, served on Advisory Board for an adoption agency, and with Alabama Birth Coalition’s Midwives for Alabama campaign. I’m a member of H.E.A.R.T. Birth Professionals. My most proud accomplishment is being mother to my two children and Nana to two princesses.
