Doula Experience

I am honored to be serving Augusta and the greater CSRA as a birth and postpartum doula. I am pursuing my certification with DONA and will have it completed in the near future. In August 2016 I completed a Spinning Babies workshop as well. I have been working as a doula since May 2015 and have attended 20 births (and counting!) since then. All of the births I have attended so far have been in a hospital setting and I have attended births at all 4 hospitals in Augusta. The births I've attended have included natural birth, induction, epidurals, VBAC, C-section, and twins.

As a mother of two children myself, I believe that birth is truly a transformative experience and that all women deserve and can benefit from the presence of a trained female birth companion. It is my hope that all women can come to see birth as something to be anticipated with confidence, not something to be feared.

As your birth doula, I will help provide resources and information regarding birth options, so that you can make informed decisions as to what is best for YOUR family. It is my desire to emotionally and physically support you and your partner through the birth process, whether that be unmedicated, medicated, or C-section. Each mother should have the opportunity to feel empowered throughout her pregnancy, labor, and postpartum period.
