I am married to my beloved, Jonathan, for the last ten years. We have three beautiful children ranging from ages 8 years to three years old. At 34 weeks pregnant, I decided to switch providers and birth at a local birth center with amazing midwives. That birth experience was so incredibly empowering, I chose to birth my last two babies at home, with my my last being caught in my arms after a very fast labor right as my midwife walked into our home! My love for serving and supporting women in childbirth was born from my very own wonderful pregnancy and birth experiences over the last eight years. This has served as my foundation as a Birth Doula. I know you can do it, for I have seen my own body do incredibly wondrous things!
Now as a Birth Doula, I strive to empower other women to find the courage and strength within themselves to birth with confidence and without fear of what-ifs. Birthing with knowledge and a voice is my hope for all women in my community. You are your best advocate for your birth goals and needs, and when you aren't able to I will be there for YOU! I am proud to serve the women and families throughout the Central Florida area. Our state has one of the highest cesarean rates at 23.9%, and that is just not okay! Time after time I hear stories of women persuaded out of their birthing rights and options due to a care provider's own preferences or dislike for particular birthing options. I’m here to provide unbiased information and emotional support that benefits you and your family during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum.
Every woman deserves to have someone there to guide and assist them in making educated choices about their pregnancy, and remind them that they can trust in the strength of their bodies during this time.
