Birth Doula Training   and Doula services

Becoming a parent is one of the most amazing events in a person's life. It is a time of learning and understanding what your baby is telling you in his or her own special baby language. Babies are little humans who come into the world completely dependent on their caregiver-you, the parents. They can tell you what they need at any time, but trying to figure out WHAT that is, is the tricky part. Education and guidance from a doula and childbirth expert can make this process so much easier-and more enjoyable for you as you learn to navigate this new lifestyle. I would love to help make this a smooth journey for all involved!

Childbirth education is a very important part of the process for a better birth experience. The more you know, the easier it will go. Being prepared, knowing your options, understanding how the process proceeds and having support can be part of the best start to this new journey.  As you learn about childbirth comfort skills, you will also find that everything you used during your birth, will also be used to comfort your baby! 

It is with great passion that inspires me to help prepare new and expecting parents for the exciting journey ahead. This website will help you learn more about how education can make a dramatic difference for your birth and parenting expectations, the importance of support and guidance, and also about training opportunities to become a doula or childbirth educator.  My mantras are: "Freedom of choice, based on knowledge of alternatives", as well as "The birth of a baby represents the birth of a family".  

Have you ever considered becoming trained to be a Birth Doula?
