She and I have worked together for the last 3 years and all of my clients in the last year have known her. She has attended over 100 births and I trust her with my life.

What is a Birth Doula?

Birth Companion, Birth Coach, or non-medical person who assists a woman before, during and after childbirth.

As a birth doula, I help support new families through the life-changing experience of having a baby! I work with parents throughout pregnancy and labor to address their unique pregnancy, labor and delivery needs. My goal is to help restore peace of mind and help create a positive experience where you feel supported, cared for, informed and respected.

During pregnancy + labor I provide the following:

  • Consultation (complimentary)

    • Introductory meeting to get to know one another and ask questions.

  • 24/7 availability via phone, email, and text

    • Once contracted no matter how far along you are in your pregnancy, I will always be available! 

  • In-person prenatal meeting

    • 2 in-person meetings where we will spend time learning your and your partner's specific preferences for your birth.  We will create a birth plan that reflects your wishes.

  • Continuous Labor Support

    • I will provide physical and emotional support during all of labor, joining you at home or at the birth center/hospital.

  • Advocacy

    • Promoting collaboration among the birth team.

  • Recovery Care

    • Support during the first 1-2 hours following birth. Can consist of amateur photography etc.

  • Postpartum Visit

    • 1-2 follow-up visits after birth. Awesome opportunity to talk about your birth experience and any postpartum questions you may have

What I Don't Do:

- Replace your partner or loved one

- perform medical/clinical tasks such as vaginal exams or fetal monitoring

- do not catch the baby

- make medical decisions for you

- diagnose conditions

Being a doula is one of the most rewarding roles I have ever had the honor of experiencing.  I have served over 100 families in my time here in Charlotte NC.  I am a DONA International Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula specializing in energy healing, herbalism, and yoga.  I have completed 200-RYT hour training in Vinyasa Flow, 24-hr Advance Prenatal yoga teacher training with a focus on women of color through Black Orchid, and 85-hr prenatal teacher training through Awakened Spirit Yoga.  I am inspired by the healing power of plants + herbs and have been formally trained herbalism for both prenatal support as well postpartum support. I support births at both Atrium and Novant Health Hospitals in Charlotte NC.  I will travel within 50 miles of my home in Charlotte, NC as a birth doula.   I am both a Novant verified and credentialed doula.  You can contact and hire me as your birth doula at any point in your pregnancy to support you in birth and childbirth as a doula.
