""Your body is always speaking to you, particularly while pregnant. When you are becoming a mom, there is no better time to explore your inner self than during this precious time. Birth says 'Show me what you are made of!' And mom says 'Challenge Accepted' with a lionness roar."" ~Liz Foster -- Pregnancy puts you on the threshold of a great rite of passage. Birth fascinates me in this way because no other experience on this Earth gives us this opportunity. To progress from "here" to "there" without getting lost, you need a guide and a map. Gathering information is not enough. I offer what I call "Birth Life Coaching" and I sprinkle bits into every client's experience. I desire to know you as a person, how you tick so that I can provide the most memorable experience for you. After all, you will always remember how you were treated in labor and birth, positive or negative. Birth Life Coaching shows you how to: Experience your pregnancy as a heroic journey; Prioritize peace of mind and physical health for you and your baby; Explore belief systems to rewire the way we view labor and birth; Create personal rituals for spiritual well-being; Embrace uncertainty, the unknown, and loss of control. These are the ideal principles in preparation for pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. And I am with you every step of the way, however it unfolds for you and your family! My greatest goal is to ensure that you and your family feel safe and secure with me by your side, ushering you into a brand new heroic journey that is motherhood. It is my highest honor to serve women in one of the most splendid moments of their lives!

I will definitely knocking on her door!
I just had my first baby, I was so terrified. You hear all the horror stories of labor. And being only 20 years old, i was completely terrified of going through something so life changing. I met Liz through a mutual friend and she was a God sent. I had my mom and my son’s fathers support while in labor but none of us knew what to expect. I was in labor for 21 hours, the first 8ish weren’t terrible, minor contractions it was bearable. Liz did lots of walking, breathing, massaging, oils. She made me feel like a queen and helped cater to anything and everything that could make that next contraction THAT much easier. After the “easy part” of labor was over, they inserted a Foley bulb into my cervix to help me progress. I shot from 1 cm dilated to 7 almost 8 in only 45 mins and I had contractions on top of eachother. I finally asked for my epidural. Which unfortunately failed, finally I got to a 9 and stopped progressing. My son’s head was tilted and needed to be turned in order for me to deliver. Liz worked very closely with my nurses and they helped move me into different positions to get his head to turn. I fear if we didn’t have her extensive knowledge, I would have needed a cessation. Finally, I reached 10 cm and we began to push. I was so weak and tired, Liz held my legs up for me for over and hour and walked me through each push, reminding me how close I was to holding my baby boy. And he finally arrived at 3:22am on August 15th. Liz spent precious time away from her family and her own children to help me bring my own into the world. I couldn’t be more thankful to her. Honestly, I couldn’t have done it without her. I was really iffy on having a doula at first, but I am so glad I decided to ask Liz for her help. Any future children I have, I will definitely be knocking on her door.
My husband and I reached out to Liz when we found out we were pregnant. My midwife recommended Liz to me because I was having a hard time finding someone who was 1. available and 2. meshed with both of us. My midwife had worked with Liz in the past and had great things to say about her. It meant a lot to me that my midwife highly recommended her because I respected my midwife’s opinion. Liz was wonderful to work with. We met with her several times before my delivery. She listened to what I was wanting for my delivery and had so many resources and information to make both my husband and I feel like we were as prepared as we could be. Her personality was calming and reassuring. Also, her vast experience as a doula was impressive. Even when our plans drastically changed (my son was breech and I had low amniotic fluid levels. They had to schedule a c section 3 weeks early), she was there through the entire thing. We had to prep for an entirely different delivery last minute. She came to the hospital and stayed by our side all the way till the recovery room after the operation. Her service didn’t stop there! A few days after my birth she came to the house with a delicious meal and more information to help with postpartum recovery. All in all Liz was wonderful! I highly recommend her as a doula.
