I am dedicated...
to helping women become aware of how their body works, what to expect, and their options for labor and delivery.
How I Became A Childbirth Educator & Doula
Originally from Michigan, I spent eleven years in Mexico working with a non-profit helping build homes for the poor, teaching children and adults and serving with various humanitarian and religious groups. My passion for education and supporting women came from seeing women birth in less than perfect situations. In 2013, after taking her required studies with GCEN, I joined up with the only midwife and childbirth educator in the town and acted as a doula, translator, instructor, and to some women the only support they had during the most amazing time in their lives.
I moved back to my hometown, Williamston, with my husband and two children in 2015 and have been serving women in the Greater Lansing Area since then, cultivating relationships with hospital staff, fellow doulas, homebirth midwives and OBs.
Training & Certifications
I am childbirth instructor and birth doula certified by the Global Childbirth Educator Network (GCEN). I have years of experience supporting families through the pregnancy, labor and birth, and postnatally. I have taken training from CAPPA for New Parent Educators as well IPPA for placenta encapsulation. I am passionate about continuing my education to serve my clients better, so I have also taken Spinning Babies® and Rebozo training. I use these techniques frequently when working with clients and students and have seen them help mom and baby during labor.
