NURTURE. SUPPORT. EMPOWER.
"Supporting, nurturing & empowering moms and their families to thrive & blossom"
Adding to your family is a big deal! Nothing truly prepares you for the crazy, awesomeness that is motherhood. It doesn't matter whether it's your first or seventh child, we all need to be cared for and supported during this special time. Imagine how great it would be to have someone to assist you during the rough milestones of pregnancy, then in turn "mother" you while you continue to heal after delivery . . .

"---I’m a passionate healer with an alternative approach, and I’m dedicated to helping my clients move through a wide range of physical, emotional, and spiritual transitions in the most efficient and transformative way possible"
how can I help, mama ?
It's not just opinion, its fact. Studies show that the emotional & physical support of a Postpartum Doula can make a significant difference in the transition period during the 4th trimester. I help new parents ( & those who've been on the parental train for a while) transition smoothly into the first initial weeks of healing and continued into the first year of life. Being able to supply families with much needed answers to the many questions they have that may not always be readily answered by their physician is my niche. Simply put, helping you is my absolute joy.

frequently asked questions
Does a Doula replace the support of a partner, friend or family member?
It is not my job, nor intention, to replace any significant member of your family. My role is to educate, provide emotional & physical support in person ( & over the phone ) during your 4th trimester
How much time do I have with my Doula?
Our time spent together is based off the needs & demands of your family. The duration may consist of as little or as much time as you may need. Overall, I want to provide such amazing support during your 4th trimester that it leaves both parents feeling confident & ready to continue their journey through parenthood feeling fully equipped.
Do you provide probono serivces?
My dream is for every new mother to have access to Doula support to ensure a safe & healthy 4th trimester for both mommy & baby. My services are not freely given however i do offer payment plans to help lighten the burden of the total investment.
