Birth can be a fearless and a joyous occasion, welcoming a little one fully embraced by love, into this world. My heart is to help take fear out of the equation, replaced by strength and joy, and to assist women with their birth goals while supporting them throughout this beautiful process.
I am mom to 8 children, aged from infant to adult. I have experienced the birthing journey in many ways with each of my own baby's births including: Cesarean birth with my first, followed by successful VBACs, some epidurals and some all-natural births. Each of my children were also successfully breastfed.
I know and understand the ups and downs along the way. I am a licensed massage therapist with 22 years experience and became a certified doula in 2015. I felt the call to come alongside other women to support and encourage them; to remind them of the beauty, strength and confidence they hold within as part of their pregnancy and birth experience.
As a doula, it is my privilege to accompany others along this path as they become a mother for the first time or the 10th time; to be there to nurture and to support women and their families along the way.
Each birth has its own story and each one should be celebrated! It is a beautiful beginning to one of life's greatest adventures.
I also cannot express enough how amazing it was to have Rebecca with us on this journey. No matter what path you desire your pregnancy, labor, and delivery to follow, Rebecca can be your advocate and 'warrior mode' partner. Plus her massages during the pregnancy kept me sane. Let me know if you or someone you know would like to get in touch with her to doula for you. - Burlie ***Click here for the (beautiful) full blog post!
