Helping You Give Birth, Your Way

As a doula, my passion is assisting every woman to have the birth she wants. That’s why my company name is Birth Your Way. I don’t believe that there is just one right way to have a healthy baby, from hospitals to home births, midwives to physicians, natural labor to epidurals, I have experienced beautiful, empowering births in all settings. The end goal of all caregivers is the same, to walk away with a healthy mom and a healthy baby. There are many approaches to reaching this goal and I work to provide you with all the information you need to make the choice that’s right for you.

Creating The Very Best Birth Plan

My role as a doula is to help women understand their options, discuss possible scenarios, and determine a birth plan that best suits them. I help families carry out their birth plans by providing constant physical, emotional and informational support throughout the labor and birth process and by remaining present for up to 2 hours after the birth to help with recovery and ensure breastfeeding is being established (if desired). Being a self-employed professional, I work for the woman/couple that hires me, and will advocate for them in whatever setting they choose.

With the goal of a healthy mom and a healthy baby in mind, the key is to find the best path for each individual to reach that end.
