About Us

I am a Purdue University graduate who studied early childhood development and women studies for five years. I am passionate, nurturing, and believe in truth which is why it is my slogan but it is also who I am. I have little experience being a doula but I have lots of knowledge. I believe being a doula is a natural act for some women and I have been told I will be natural because of my nurturing personality. I am a feminist by nature but am also a feminist scholar. I will passionately inform you of the facts; of your rights as a person, of any group. Women giving birth are vulnerable to ‘today’s idea’ of what childbirth is. Many women in America see childbirth as medical; they think of childbirth in a hospital with pain medication. Some are scared of childbirth possibly making subconscious connections with pain, fear, sickness, or surgery. Birth I truly believe birth is the most natural event in a woman’s life; if she so chooses to have a child. There is no right way to have a baby except the way that feels most comfortable. Childbirth will change the person you are and hopefully make for an exciting new chapter in your life. As a birth doula I will nurture you, practice relaxation techniques, and help you into progressive labor positions. I encourage you to ask questions in order for you to make informed decision; I am a ‘mom first’ doula and your health is top priority to me. Postpartum You have just spent the last nine months holding a precious jewel closer to you than you ever will again. Your baby now lives outside of you and everyone’s life is changed. This is a time for new families to try to learn this new balance of life with a newborn. Your new baby may seem oddly unfamiliar. You will hear new sights and sounds. What is typical? What is natural? As a postpartum doula, I will focus on mom first and help her process her birth experience. I will make this time enjoyable for your whole family, playing with siblings, talking to grandparents, fixing you meals, and holding baby while you get in a quick shower. Here is a list of the care I specialize in but not everything I will do for you is on this list because the postpartum period is different for everyone. My goal is to make it memorable as well as relaxing for everyone and if that means watering your flowers or siting with you to talk about life which is not on my list, I will do it! Because you deserve it, everyone does. · processing the birth experience · assisting with multiples · postpartum physical changes · breastfeeding · providing evidence based information · integrating the baby · postpartum mood disorder · basic newborn care · loss and grief With my knowledge and training my goal is to make this time feel natural, enjoyable, and exceptional for everyone in your family.
