Welcome! If you find yourself searching for a doula, it is likely you are expecting a new life to enter your family in the near future! It truly is a unique, life-changing time, isn’t it? Pregnancy, birth, and the first weeks of a newborn’s life are truly some of the most vivid memories we carry. We will tell these stories for the rest of our lives; how we experience them matters.
This is where a doula comes in. A doula can enhance the experience of pregnancy and birth by providing care that helps a family through the joys and sometimes trials that may occur. A doula gives support, provides education, offers experience, and helps to normalize many of the aspects of pregnancy and birth. A doula answers questions, connects you to resources, listens to your process, and helps you consider what values are important to you. When it comes to the birth itself, a doula provides continuous support to give reassurance, coach through
comfort measures, and provide hands on help. A doula is not a medical professional but is connected to the family and birth preferences as an advocate and vital support.
A doula can benefit your family no matter what your situation and goals are. You are creating new life and deserve to be well cared for as you walk this sacred journey.
As a doula, I care about the outcomes that are important to the families I serve. I am ready to help provide resources if needed and respect decisions that are made by expectant parents. I will make every effort to make sure you feel safe, heard, and continually cared for during labor. I remain calm, encouraging, and engaged.
I serve families in the Minneapolis/St. Paul and surrounding area. Look around the rest of the site to find out more about me and the services I offer. Contact me with questions or if you are looking for doula care.
