Passionate birth advocate, mother of four, community volunteer, and certified birth doula, I am here to serve women and families in their individual journeys through birth. I will move heaven and earth to help you advocate for the informed, empowered birth experience you desire. Sometimes I guide, more often I follow, frequently I simply guard the birth space. The women I serve are powerful, inspiring, and truly magnificent. I believe in them, and I believe in you. I would be honored to walk beside you during this special time of transition.
I live in NE Fort Wayne and serve the surrounding areas as well, typically up to a 50-mile radius. I have attended births in many homes as well as at all Fort Wayne hospitals, Dekalb Health, Auburn Birthing Center, and several smaller county hospitals. My service package includes at least two prenatal visits in your home beyond the initial meet-and-greet so I can learn how I can best serve you during labor and birth, continuous labor support for you and your family from as early in active labor as you’re comfortable with until mom and baby are settled and ready to rest after the birth (typically about two hours postpartum), at least one postpartum visit to discuss how the birth unfolded and how mom and baby are doing currently, a detailed birth story outline and pictures or video if desired, extensive knowledge of local professional resources for the childbearing year, and ongoing phone and e-mail support. Add-on services, if desired, include mother blessing ceremony officiating and placenta encapsulation. Feel free to drop me a line; let’s start talking birth!
