Bio
I am a 29 year old married momma to 2 awesome kids. I'm also a gestational surrogate, having delivered twins.

I love everything about conception, pregnancy, labor and birth so much so that I've always wanted to be a Certified Nurse Midwife. Being a momma to a 10 year old and 3 year old, my life doesn't really permit that. I worked as an LNA for a while, but that didn't quite hit that need to help, hands on with birthing women. So, I finally found a way to be a source of support and encouragement to laboring women and their partners. To advocate for them, if need be. Most of all, to inform them.

Even though I delivered my second child via planned c-section, I don't know what I would have done without my doula. She was amazing, gave me tips to practice relaxing techniques and even enabled me to walk into the hospital and tell THE DOCTORS how my delivery was going to be. It was an amazing experience for myself and my family.
