I am a mom in Wilmington, NC, and a Birth Doula trained through toLabor (formerly ALACE). I view birth as a normal, natural and spiritual process that helps to prepare us for parenting. My goal is to help women overcome any fear they may have, so they may fully experience their power in giving birth. Staying connected though the process can facilitate a magical beginning to a new life.

My philosophy gets revised with each birth I experience. This is the main reason I chose the easily-editable blog format to chronicle those changes and to refine my perspective as I go along. If you are interested in my services or what I do, please explore the blog posts, and leave a comment if you would like me to contact you. 

Besides providing emotional and physical support to women birthing in our local hospital, I assist at area homebirths. Yes, giving birth at home is perfectly legal and safe with a trained care provider. Your health insurance may even cover it. You can find more information about birthing in the comfort of your own home by visiting Midwifery Services (see link on main page).

I strive to maintain an open heart and open mind. I get my greatest fulfillment in helping others to realize their full potential. Please let me know how you are doing!
