“EVERY BIRTH IS A NATURAL BIRTH: EACH OF US IS PART OF NATURE, NOT SEPARATE FROM IT, AND NATURE IS ALWAYS STUNNING IN ITS VARIETY. YOUR BIRTH, THEN, IS PART OF THE NATURAL WORLD, HOWEVER IT UNFOLDS.” 

— Lauralyn Curtis

As a birth advocate, I feel incredibly honored to be invited into a mama's birth space. Birth is a sacred rite of passage that brings self-awareness, growth, inner-reflection, discovery and transformation. For me, attending a birth is a bit like walking on holy ground.

My practice is based in the deep-seated belief that childbirth is a journey through which you should feel empowered and unconditionally supported. I believe that you should continuously feel both comfortable and respected as you bring your baby earthside.

As your doula, I will support, inform, and lovingly hold space for you and your partner without judgement.

Comfort measures I will offer/assist with during your birth: positioning for optimal fetal descent, pelvic rocking, hip squeezes/counter pressure, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, tension releasing affirmations, relaxing massage, mood setting, and use of a MamaTENS™ unit.
