Daytime Postpartum Support
Nighttime Postpartum Support
Everyone benefits from dedicated support when major life transformations are underway. I became a doula to offer the knowledge, care and support families deserve during this thrilling, yet often daunting, time of pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum. As your doula, it is my role to provide you with evidence-based information, so you came make informed decisions about what works best for you and your family. Having a support network in place BEFORE baby arrives makes such a difference!
My approach to working with your family is founded on genuine respect, trust, and having strong reciprocal relationships with you, your new baby, and your family. I would LOVE to be that support person that we ALL need. Accepting help is the opposite of failing, it's the only way to succeed! The heart of my passion is serving as a consistent source of encouragement for families.I have a BS in Early Childhood Education form Wheelock College in Boston and an MA in Infant Special Education from The George Washington University. I am a certified Birth and Postpartum Doula through Lifespan Doulas. l'm also Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED certified. I am COVID vaccinated and boosted.
I live in Alexandria, VA and am the mother to five amazing children between the ages of 6 and 16. My birth experiences were all very different, but I learned so much from each one and they each have their own story.I personally experienced an unexpected cesarean birth after 18 hours of labor with my first child, followed by 4 successful VBACs that I am very proud of!
I absolutely loved this time in my life and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to support your family during this exciting time in your lives! It truly is an honor and a privilege to share in this miraculous and intimate moment in your family's life.
I can't wait to meet you!
