Every child a woman bears and every birth experience will forever transform the landscape of her soul.  Every mother and baby have their own unique birth story to walk out. I feel so deeply that every woman deserves to feel safe, supported, and empowered as she embraces the sacred in bringing forth new life, there is no miracle as amazing as birth!

As a mother my own journey has included unplanned pregnancies, infertility, 8 pregnancies, 4 miscarriages, medicated hospital births, NICU, unmedicated births at my midwife’s home birth center, and all sorts of nursing and postpartum struggles.  

As your doula, my goal is to get to know your heart and any other birthing partner you may have.  By knowing your hopes and fears, comforts and absolute no’s, I can help hold a safe place for you, encourage you, and cheer you on as you embrace the powerful life changes that your birth experience brings.

I live in Vancouver with my husband, our 4 homeschooled children, and our dog.  I love all things green and growing, natural healing, and being creative and spontaneous.  I’m an ENFP and a 7w6 with emotional elasticity and victory over trauma.  Healthy relationships with ourselves, each other, and spiritual healing and growth are my passion so, I enjoy ministry with that focus as well as deep and intimate worship.  When we’re not learning or serving, we can be found cooking, playing games, adventuring in our amazing PNW, wildcrafting, or creating art and music.

I look forward to meeting you, congratulations on your blessing!!!
