Oily Doula LLC
Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN area
I am a DONA International trained and certified doula with 20 years of working with youth and families in the non-profit realm.
Serving families in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, I love helping parents realize their strength and ability. I truly believe children are a gift from God and the birthing process is nothing short of a miracle. I know I was created for this beautiful work. Though I have been fascinated with child birth for many years, I never heard of the word doula until Feb 2016.
I have spent two decades working to support healthy families. My career has included working as an after-school program director, healthy relationships/sexual health educator, community connector for an elementary school, homeless shelter co-facilitator and leading teen community service trips.
Originally from Cleveland, OH, I moved to Minneapolis in 2014. I enjoy spending time with others, watching TV /movies, eating good food and relaxing on the beach. My favorite things in life revolve around relationships with others!
In 2017, I trained and certified with DONA International, attended a Spinning Babies training, became a part of Everyday Miracles, and joined the Childbirth Collective.
In 2018, I have completed my HypnoBirthing Doula Training, re-certified with Red Cross in CPR/First Aid and am currently taking a Holding Space for Pregnancy Loss class. I have attended approximately 30 births.
Every child deserves to be loved and every family deserves the birth experience they desire!
Oily Doula LLC takes time to get to know parents as they navigate their birthing options. Through this process families make decisions for their own births and bodies and are empowered to continue making decisions throughout their birthing time. The birthing room is a sacred space and it is my privilege to hold that space for you. As a doula, I believe it is my role to encourage, empower and provide evidenced based information to families during pregnancy, during the birthing time and in the postpartum period. Every child deserves to be loved and every family deserves the birth experience they desire!
