"Your birth, a sacred moment of your life, should be preserved and respected by all who attend it" -Danae
I believe that birth is one of the most important moments of your life and that each and every person that gives journeys through this transformational time deserves to feel supported, nurtured, informed, respected, and empowered each and every step of the way. I am passionate about supporting families through pregnancy, birth and the postpartum season of life.
I do not want anyone to feel that they are walking into the deep forest of unknowns; but rather that they have an experienced guide by their side, helping make sense of which paths there are to allow each family to make informed decisions for their birthing experience, while holding space for taking breaks along the way to soak in the beautiful moments, and ultimately being that old tree to lean on when it gets hard to stand alone.
A positive birth does not have to be an unmedicated one, it simply needs two ingredients: autonomy of choice and unbiased support. Let me help you walk through this majestic trek of your life!
I've spent my entire life fascinated in pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum season and as I grew older, my values and dreams just kept aligning me to birth work.
