My personal goal is to help women learn to trust in their innate wisdom, strong bodies, and in the birthing process.
Mother Earth Birth believes that happy and healthy outcomes for parents and babies arise when modern medicine and innate wisdom coexist.

What to Expect
If interested in my services, please contact me via the "Contact and Register" tab above. After I receive your information, I will reach out to plan a virtual “meet and greet”. This meeting will determine if working together as a doula and client team will be appropriate. Are we a well-suited birthing team with similar goals? Will we enjoy working together? There is no pressure to commit to my Doula Services after our initial "Meet and Greet". It is recommended that you reach out to me as early as feasible, but of course every pregnancy and birth is unique and I am always flexible with timing.
Following the decision to move forward together, I will send a contract defining the terms of our doula and client relationship. The contract may be reviewed for up to one week, as I secure your due date on my calendar. Once accepted and signed, the contract reserves your dates on my calendar from 38 through 41 weeks gestation. Upon signing, the first non-refundable payment is due.
A second virtual “prenatal meeting” is then planned to discuss obstetrical and medical history, your partner’s role, birth planning, and birth decisions, paths to relaxation, preparedness for breastfeeding, homecoming with a newborn, and more.
After our initial few meetings, we will plan subsequent meetings and/or phone calls, to be scheduled intermittently as need and urgency dictate. Should you wish, I will be available to accompany you to (2) obstetrical or ultrasound appointments. The private Childbirth Education Class and Prenatal Yoga sessions will be at a mutually agreeable date and time. Outside of these planned meetings, I am always available and delighted to talk by phone about any pregnancy related issue or concerns that may arise.
During the weeks surrounding your due date (38 – 41 weeks gestation), I will be prepared to arrive at the hospital within 30-90 minutes from your call requesting my support. At the hospital, I will be an advocate for your health and birth decisions, contributing my clinical expertise and providing emotional support. I will interpret all medical procedures and oversee their successful execution, including monitoring the fetal heart rate when necessary. Additionally, I will be available to guide you through breathing exercises, relaxation techniques, and gentle massage. In the event of operative delivery, I will be available to accompany you to the operating room suite, with my continued support, provided that hospital regulations permit. Following your delivery I will remain at your bedside for 1-2 hours, ensuring your safety and comfort, and assisting with your newborn feeding method of choice.
