Welcome! I am a Michigan Doula and Child Birth Educator for Emmet and Charlevoix Counties . I offer services such as emotional, physical and spiritual support to  birthing parents and families during childbirth and postpartum period. My goal is to help you establish a birth plan that will provide a nurturing, caring, supportive environment for you during the amazing life-event of childbirth.

Each of my birth's were unique in their own way. Sawyer's birth was epic. Due May 8th, 2022 I was excited for the possibility of giving birth on my father's birthday however, nature had other plans. My water broke March 9. WHAT is happening? Tears! Fear! I was 31 weeks. 31 weeks!!! When I arrived at the hospital it was very clear the plan was to try and keep me pregnant for as long as possible (goal 32 weeks) I labored on and off for over a week. We made it! He was born at 32.5 weeks. Without my previous experiences with my Doula (her words resignating in my head) and my midwife during my second labor/delivery I wouldn't have made it through this birth.  I was able with an amnioinfusion to deliver our sweet boy naturally. I am so thankful for our positive outcome. He was healthy and only had to stay in NICU for two weeks. I will add that Traverse City Muson OB staff was amazing as well as the entire NICU staff. 

Need a consult?

 Now accepting Medicaid as well as managed care plans and private pay! Contracts include up to three prenatal visits, entire childbirth and up to three postpartum visits as well as phone/text support. No additional fees for length of birth.  It is my goal to honor all birthing people and their right to a nurturing, calm life transition into parenthood.  Contact me about your future birth! I look forward to hearing from you!
