A little about me...
I'm a coffee fueled, classic rock inspired, hands-on, baby lovin' postpartum doula here to help new parents feel empowered, confident, nurtured and informed.
The flame for my adoration of babies, was unexpectedly lit when many of the lovely ladies in my life became pregnant. One by one, each of them had gorgeous baby after gorgeous baby. I would come over, visit with baby, chat with mom and dad, offer advice and support, do some laundry, wash the dishes and leave the new parents a bit more informed, encouraged and sometimes well-rested.
It was only a few months later that I found out that I could actually do this for a living! And I've been hooked on it ever since...
On May 1st, 2016, I joined the Mom Club, and welcomed my own sweet baby boy, CJ. My passion for babies has only been fueled even more by his arrival. Again on June 13th, 2019 we welcomed our second son, Carter. I feel so incredibly blessed to be their mama (cliche, I know, but so TRUE), and equally blessed to know that I am very lucky to be so in love with the work that I do.
I am CPR and First Aid certified for infants, children and adults. I have had my TB test and TDAP vaccination. My criminal history background check is clean and I have a clear driving record (both available by request). I attended and completed the required DONA International 27 Hour Postpartum Doula Workshop in 2015, and the Gentle Blessings Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) Workshop in 2017.
I'd love to meet you to see what needs your family might have and how I can help make the transition from expecting to baby in arms as smooth, memorable and enjoyable as possible.
