Mind Centered Birth

Congratulations!! Hello, I am a birth doula, GentleBirth educator and professional photographer. I feel so blessed to combine the things I love to do into one job--serving you. I am married with two kids 14 and 11 years old. In my community I am the current president of the group Treasure Valley Doulas bringing awareness to our community about birth and postpartum support and connecting parents with that support.
I know that every birth is different. You probably have a sense for what kind of birth you desire already. I’m here to help coach and guide you to informed decisions that support your vision. Through my journey of having two children I recognized the need for women to have more support during labor and to feel confident with their body in birth. I believe that our bodies know how to birth if given the right support. Historically, birth was an intuitive act. A “village” of women came to a birth…grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunts, and friends would surround a mother with comfort and knowledge. Western medicine has made birth safer in many ways for mothers and babies. But I believe that we could benefit from the intuitive approach of times past; tapping into the power of the mind. I can be the doula that helps you bridge the benefits of modern medicine and the intuitive power of your own body. I will show you how to let the mind lead so that the body can follow.

All of my birth doula services includes prenatal visits to get acquainted, go over any concerns, talk about your preferences and desires, teach comfort measures and advocacy techniques. I am there during your birth and for the immediate postpartum to assist with breastfeeding as needed. I also come to your home for a postpartum visit to help with new parent adjustment. When you hire me as your doula you also get the benefit of my professional photography services. I can photograph your labor and birth as your desire and provide a CD of images. I am happy to capture those first precious family moments.
