I am a wife to my wonderful husband Michael of almost 20 years and mother to our three beautiful children.
Our daughter Emma is a student at VCU and an amazing dancer, Michael is a junior in high school and a varsity wrestler and Nora is our witty future hockey player. We love to travel as much as we can. I also love to cook and the family likes to eat! I was a certified birth doula in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for several years when my children were much younger and a stay at home mom. Now that we have moved to Northern Virginia I am thrilled to get back to my passion and getting back to being a doula. And now that my children are older I am more flexible and available then ever.
Being in the business of birth support is a true gift and a privilege, my heart is full to be able to do something that I love so very much. I have been a doula for teen mothers and woman in need. I have also been birth support and guidance for VBAC’s (vaginal birth after cesarean), cesarean births, vaginal both is a hospital atmosphere and birth centers. I have also been trained in childbirth education.
I doula with great empathy, care, open mindedness and attention. This is your unique and special birth experience and it is my goal to make sure you and your partner feel supported, informed and at ease.
