I am married to my dearest friend of 31 years and am living a "dream come true" as the blessed mother of 7 amazing children and grandmother to 3 little Grands! When my husband and I started our family in the late 80’s, we did lots of research! The more we read, the more we fell in love with pregnancy and motherhood. Inspired by the wonder of natural childbirth, we hired our first midwife in 1989 and were blessed to give birth to all 7 of our babies in the peace and safety of our home. I was marked. For life. By the miracle of BIRTH. As the years went by, more and more friends requested my help at their births. Not realizing I was being a "doula", I simply committed myself to bringing comfort and peace to my friends when they gave birth! My heart came alive as I offered these women the support and encouragement they needed during their deliveries. I was deeply honored to be a part of their births! I was eager to learn how to help them more effectively. Later, when I discovered that what I loved was encompassed in the word "doula" and that its definition is "servant," I knew that I had found a life’s calling. Through the years, I’ve taken my passion for serving women in labor, and I've added 25 years of experience, skills, and professional training to better serve my clients. I have experience as a childbirth assistant, birth doula, childbirth educator, and postpartum doula. Together with my daughter Joy, we support mothers during pregnancy continuing all the way through the "fourth trimester" called postpartum. Our goal is to serve mothers in a spirit of excellence by creating an atmosphere of comfort, peace, and confidence! It would be a joy and an honor to serve you!
