Doula Services

logo

I am in awe of the miracle of life that is the process of pregnancy, labor, and birth. I became passionate about birth when I realized many women were not being informed and supported in the labor and birth process. I am dedicated to empowering women to have the birth experience they desire. Through emotional, physical, and educational support, I feel the birth experience can be a very positive one. I assist women in understanding their options and encourage them to choose what they would or would not prefer in their own birth experience.  Research shows having a doula’s constant support and care at birth can result in less complicated labors, reduces negative feelings about one’s birth experience, and increases a woman’s self confidence and security in her ability to birth and mother her new child.  I consider it a privilege to be a part of such a special time in the lives of the women and families I serve.

I began my journey as a birth doula in 2011, serving women in Nashville and the surrounding areas. In 2012 I started my birth doula certification process through DONA and in 2014 I became a DONA certified birth doula and was also certified in Rebozo use for labor and birth.  I have experience with medicated, non-medicated, VBAC, and cesarean births.
