Taking a Lamaze class and finding the right support during pregnancy can make all the difference in building confidence in your ability to give birth. I provide you with the knowledge and resources to make informed choices. Understanding how to support your body during labor leads to greater satisfaction of your birth experience, reduced fear and anxiety, and is associated with higher rates of vaginal birth.
For almost 50 years, Lamaze International has been the leader in childbirth education and is recognized worldwide.
Throughout history, women have been supported during labor by other women. I am passionate about supporting women through pregnancy and birth. Our relationship is built on trust as I learn what your desires and preferences for birth are. I provide encouragement, physical comfort, and advocate for what you want during labor. During pregnancy, I am here for both you and your partner to answer questions, build you up, and work through any fears you may have surrounding birth.
Studies show that doulas increase the satisfaction of your birthing experience and help improve bonding between mother and infant. All while also decreasing pain scores and medical complications.
