Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

My passion is to serve families through the amazing transition from pregnancy to postpartum. I have a degree as a Registered Medical Assistant, Ive trained with Birth Arts International, CAPPA, and im currently working on my certification with Stillbirth day. I have taken first aid, Adult/infant CPR, emergency first aid, HIPPA/OSHA training, as well as experience from the dozens of births i've attended. Although medical procedures are not in my scope of practice i am very knowledgeable on procedures, understanding test results, and am up to date on most procedures that regularly occur during labor and delivery to make sure you are well informed and know your rights.

Taylor Moore

It was such a blessing to have Dara at the birth of our son last New Years! From the weeks of prep beforehand through the follow-up texts and visit in the weeks following his arrival, I always felt like I was talking more to a friend than someone I had just met. She was incredibly supportive, thoughtful, and informed. She came in the middle of the night to help me through the start of my labor and was so adept at helping to guide me through things while also allowing me space to do what felt right in the moment. I don't remember every minute of my 32.5 hour labor, but I will always remember how glad I was that she was there.
