I believe that giving birth is a powerful, life-altering experience. Creating a positive birth experience strengthens and empowers not only the mother but the bond between her, her baby and her husband. Helping women and their family navigate this sacred rite of passage builds healthy relationships that are far reaching.
No matter how or where you choose to have your baby, I will provide continuous support and create an atmosphere advantageous to labor and birth. It is an honor to support families throughout the birth and I will help you remember your fortitude and sacrifice afterward.
The work that I do as a birth doula is something I dreamed of doing for over 30 years! I had longed to be a midwife or labor and delivery nurse but the time was not right. I loved the work of my younger years in fitness and music, leading worship. Even years working as an artist doing faux finishes, murals, and other decorative painting. Those experiences enhance who I am and what I bring to birth today.
I am certified as a birth doula through DONA International and continue to hone my skills, deepen my understanding of pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding through extensive reading and study. I serve families in the greater Atlanta, Gainesville and Athens area.
I am happily married with four grown children, two young grandchildren and another on the way!
