I have decided I need to move forward with a name change for my business.
I started with this name when I was new to the birth world and I feel the name no longer is inclusive, empowering or well-informed.
Thank you for your patience and support during this transition.
I will continue to provide birth doula services to anyone and everyone.

Birth Doula Services
With my first, I labored alone for hours, while my husband was trying to fill up the birthing tub and prepare my desired labor environment. My baby was born 20 minutes after my midwife arrived. I never made into the tub, never lit candles, never put on a playlist... I made growling sounds for hours while going between the toilet and my bed. It wasn't what I had planned, but I still felt strong and powerful at the end of the experience.
Everyone deserves to feel this kind of strength and empowerment by being in control of their birth journey. I want to help reinforce women, encourage them to use their voices to get what they need and deserve.
The needs of a laboring woman are dynamic. The doula provides emotional care and support throughout and works with the medical providers (doctors, midwives, nurses). The doula is not a replacement for the partner. It is an opportunity for both mother and partner to feel supported, giving space for relaxation and connection.
Your birth. Your way.
