My passion is to help women achieve the birth they desire! Pregnancy and birth is a beautiful time in a woman's life and should be celebrated, honored, and respected.
I became certified as a doula in 2000, and quickly followed up with Childbirth Educator training, with my trainings and certifications carried out through CAPPA (Childbirth and Postpartum Professionals Association). Shortly after this I became trained as a postpartum doula. In 2015 I became a trained HypnoDoulato better support women utilizing Hypnobabies programs. In close to 400 attended births and numerous continuing education opportunities, I have truly expanded my field to help women understand their options and evidence based birth practices, prevent unnecessary complications from arising, and help women and their partners feel empowered and happy with their birth experience. Informed consent is my platform and I think there is no truer saying than "If you don't know your options, you don't have any."
Over the years I have developed a profound interest in helping women and their partners heal from previous traumatic birth experiences and opened the Knoxville Chapter for ICAN (International Cesarean Awareness Network). This organization, along with professionals like myself, helps spread awareness about prevention of, accurate information concerning, and healing from surgical births. Watching a woman realize her dream of a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) or feel empowered about a RCS (Repeat Cesarean) is one of the greatest joys in my life. Working closely with other holistic providers in Knoxville and surrounding areas allows me to make recommendations for healing, empowerment, providers, support groups, and more!
I offer free consultations to anyone considering having a doula at their birth or postpartum period!
