I am DONA trained, a member of the Central Texas Doula Association and have been researching birth as an advocate since 2008 and work very closely with ICAN of Austin and the South Austin Pregnancy Resource Center as a doula. I am a mother of two and am in awe of the power of a woman’s body in regards to pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I have a special passion for helping first time moms, mothers who have had a previous cesarean and VBAC moms. I have experience with all birthing atmospheres, home, birthing center, and hospital.
I provide support from conception through the first year, including pregnancy, birth, and postpartum such as baby wearing, homemade baby food and formula, and early potty training. Motherhood and birth take every part of your being and I believe having the support of other individuals is a vital part in a woman’s journey from woman to mother.
One of my favorite passages in the Bible is:
This is never more true than in the event of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Helping a mother see this about herself and her baby is the greatest honor I could have.
