Meet the Doula!
A little about me...
I am happily married to my college sweetheart of 23 years and we have three amazing sons. As a mom with my own varied birth experiences, I know that giving birth is really hard work. I have learned that good support is essential, no birth is ever the same, and it does not come with any guarantees. The only predictable thing about birth is that it's unpredictable!
Even though each of my births was vastly different, the one common thread throughout each experience was that I had an amazing support system of people who believed in me, encouraged me, and sought to be my biggest cheerleaders from start to finish. This inspired me to be that person for someone else. For the past eight years, I have been consistently serving families as a trusted labor doula and childbirth educator here in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.
I am a trained and certified professional doula offering non-judgmental support to my clients. I make it my goal to prepare them for the kind of birth they desire and commit to walk beside them every step of the way.
I am also a certified childbirth educator offering personalized, private classes to couples wanting to learn about any and every aspect of pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and beyond.
The Scope of a Doula....
"If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it." ~Dr. John H. Kennell, M.D.
