My interest in becoming a Doula began 19 years ago as I gave birth to my son. I had no idea what my options were and sadly did not educate myself. I went along with all the interventions they said I needed and was not aware of the consequences. Nobody offered information and I did not ask. As a result my birth was very long and traumatic. My first year was equally very hard and I suffered with severe postpartum depression. My son was diagnosed with Autism so I am very experienced with children with disabilities. I am also very experienced in supporting families who have children with disabilities and mental health needs. I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula. I am also a Massage Therapist, specializing in Perinatal & Postpartum massage. In addition I am a Reiki & Craniosacral Practitioner. I am a newer Doula eager to learn and grow. I have been a Massage Therapist for 8 years. I feel passionately about supporting women and families to have a birth experience they desire. I believe in meeting others where they are while gently guiding them to access the tools and resources available for their needs.
