Letting someone walk beside you as you move into parenthood is almost a necessity. Someone who understands, someone who may have done this a time or two and has been on both sides of the birthing and postpartum process. Someone who sees and hears your every emotion and need without letting it affect what they love to do. Which is serve YOU.
As your postpartum support team I meet you at every emotional and mental place that birth and postpartum take you. It's a subtle presence, it doesn't push anyone out of the process, I don't take anyone's place. Dad, partner, sister, mother, they all have their role and it's a role that I could never fill.
This is your journey. I am here to support you and your family every step of the way.
I am a mom to two amazingly joyful, kind and talented children. I have been married to my husband since 2003, and with him being in the US Army we have moved all over the United States. We are currently living in southern California and loving it, as it is far cry from the mid-west where we both grew up.
I am a DONA trained birth doula. I received my placenta service training from IPPA along with my postpartum care training. I've also held an apprenticeship with the amazing Britta Bushnell and Sparrow Harrington who is magical with her hands. I am always looking to learn and grow and add to my offerings.
Going back to my own postpartum time having a birth and postpartum doula is one of the three things I wish I would have known about when I was having my babies. The other two are placenta encapsulation and baby wearing. The lack of knowledge I had then has driven me to learn as much as possible and pass this information on to other new families.
