I started my journey to become a birth doula out of the desire to walk alongside other women in their stories. When I look back at some of the key moments and seasons that shaped where I am today, I see the faces of a number of women who were there for me -- women who encouraged, supported, helped, and listened. I believe there is incredible value in being supported and encouraged by other women. Nowhere did I find this more true than in prenatal, labour and the weeks following the birth of my son. While the value of a spouse or partner never goes away and cannot be replaced, there is also incredible value in women supporting and standing with other women. My husband and I have been incredibly blessed by the support and encouragement of others, and it is my desire to see other women (and their partners) have this same support.
I also believe in the importance of families and believe by supporting the mother, helping to relieve fear and stress, and simply offering another set of hands the family is strengthened as they move forward into this new season!
I look forward to meeting with you and discussing how I can support you. As your family grows!
