After the birth of my daughter I felt a strong desire and calling to support women and their partners through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I believe that birth is a beautiful and natural process that should not instill fear, but rather can bring joy and empowerment. My doula fee includes two prenatal visits, 24/7 call and text support, birth planning, labor and birth support, birth photos, birth timeline, and a postpartum visit. I am here to answer any questions you have and would love to discuss the vision that you have for your birth.

I had never met Patience before she came to the hospital to support me in labor. My husband and I had gotten COVID when we were supposed to meet up with her. But soon after she showed up at the hospital, I knew we were in great hands.
Honestly, I would not have made it through my labor well at all without Patience.
She encouraged me constantly, gave space for my husband to help support me alongside her, administered counterpressure that actually counteracted my labor pains, and just encouraged me through a very difficult labor.
She came to the hospital and stayed until I felt ready for her to leave... All in all, it was over 30 hours that she was there.
Because of dangerous complications, I ended up having a C-Section and was so sad about it. Patience again encouraged me and held my hand as I cried.
Honestly, Patience just had such great intuition about what I needed at each and every moment.
My husband and our son are absolutely indebted to her for her support and incredibly gentle and stabilizing presence through my labor.
Looking back, I cannot imagine the labor and delivery without her.
We will absolutely be calling her for our next baby's delivery!
