My journey to birth work started when I was a student at the University of Notre Dame, and a midwife came and spoke to one of my anthropology classes.  I learned about normal birth from her and knew from that moment on I wanted a midwife to attend my births some day. Fast forward to 2006 when I gave birth to my first son.  It was a very positive experience and I was supported by my husband, a friend who acted as my doula, and my midwife.  I knew then that I would eventually become a birth doula myself. 

That dream was realized in 2011 when I attended a DONA doula training and began attending births.  I’ve been working as a doula and offering placenta encapsulation services since then.  I became a Hypnobabies instructor in June of 2012.  Hypnobabies is such a comprehensive class, which is one of the reasons why I was drawn to teach it.  I’ve always said it includes everything I would put in my own class if I were to design a class. I love teaching because our Hypnobabies students become so knowledgeable about birth and really empowered to take charge of their own birth experiences. And the self-hypnosis tools our students learn are unlike anything else out there.  Although we are done having kids, I often tell people I’d love to give birth again to get the opportunity to do Hypnobabies!

My goal for all birthing families is that they will be educated, informed, and have a positive experience, because our birth experiences stay with us for the rest of our lives. I’m an advocate for midwifery care for all low-risk women, and have been working with breastfeeding moms in a volunteer capacity since 2008.  I love that as a doula I get to be present for that first breastfeeding session, and also enjoy teaching couples all about breastfeeding in a course I co-teach with a board-certified lactation consultant called “Nourish and Nurture: Breastfeeding Simplified.”
