Monitrice, CLD, CPD,CCE, CLC, CBI(p)
I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things about life. As a Monitrice Doula, I am privileged to help women and their partners make these experiences as positive and healthy as possible. It is always exciting to me when another scientific paper proves the positive impact a doula can have on the mother and family. I am honored to have apprenticed as a lay midwife and have served in many specialties as a birthing professional for over 22 years, including birthing education, health, nutrition and supplement suggestions, pain management, lactation counseling, and parent mentorship.
I am able to incorporate a wide variety of skills during pregnancy and labor, such as prenatal massage, essential oils, acupressure, effleurage, belly dancing, massage therapy, aromatherapy and much more. It is always my goal to empower the birthing team with the tools they need to be as involved as possible to enable comfort, peace and strength to laboring mothers.
I am thrilled to offer experienced, educated, tender care to women and families in homes, hospitals or birthing centers across the greater Kansas City Metro area.
