I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. All three roles bring me immense joy !
I am also a passionate doula. My own birth and mothering experiences inspired me to become a doula... to provide guidance, care, and support to other families as they navigate this life changing experience of welcoming a baby into their own lives.
In addition to my birth and postpartum doula services, I love spending time outdoors, gardening, yoga, sewing, gathering with family and friends, and discovering new places right around the corner as well as around the world.
