After the birth of my daughter at the age of 16, I found out that I HAD choices and rights in childbirth. When I became pregnant with my son 14 years later I educated myself relentlessly on the process of birth, how cope with labor and birth, and my rights as a childbearing woman. I also hired a doula because the evidence strongly supported many benefits with having one. It was life changing, and in 2011, I knew that I was the women on a mission to better birth by helping women educate themselves and supporting needs that were never met with the 20 minute doctor visit. I feel that everyone DESERVES to be fully informed when making decisions for their bodies, and that everyone SHOULD be treated like family, and not just a patient. I look forward to meeting with you, and supporting your decisions in pregnancy, labor, birth, and beyond.
