 Doula is Greek meaning 'a woman who serves'. As a doula I serve women and their partners by providing support during pregnancy, labor, birth, and beyond!  I arrive when you need me and stay until after baby is born and everyone has eaten and are resting. No matter how long that may be.  I do not charge by the hour or have maximum hours I will stay. Doctors, midwives and nurses come and go.  I am the consistent presence that helps you feel comfortable and safe, but also recognizes and supports your privacy and bonding as a new family. 

       I am your interpreter in the foreign land of the hospital

Taking my Lamaze Healthy Birthing classes helps you and your partner understand and prepare for labor and birth. You will have lots of tools in your toolkit to help with labor and birth.
When you don't know your choices you have none

As a certified lactation counselor I offer a free Breastfeeding Basics Class to help you prepare for your breastfeeding journey.  

I also see moms privately in their home for a postpartum breastfeeding consult to help get breastfeeding off to a good start. 

Moms who take a class and have support available have a higher breastfeeding success rate
