Birth Fee: $500 to $600

Fee Details: I believe in your ability to birth any way you choose! As a childbirth educator, I pride myself on facilitating a positive, judgment-free environment to ask questions and gain knowledge about all things pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. As a labor doula, I share that knowledge and prior experience while supporting you physically, emotionally, and mentally. I found untapped strength in becoming a parent, and it's my purpose to help you connect to that feeling, too. I pride myself in facilitating a safe space for my clients to ask questions and learn about their options. I combine my empathetic nature with my skill for organization and research to create a calm, stable environment for pregnancy, birth. I specialize in perinatal anxiety, complex family dynamics, and military families. My ultimate goal is for my clients to feel prepared, supported, and confident on their path to parenthood!
