Pregnancy is such an exciting and empowering time.
Whether it’s your first or fifth pregnancy, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. You’re researching midwives, doctors, pediatricians, and birth plans. Birth is an intense life transformation and you want to get this right from the start.
I’m sure you have heard your friends and family’s birth stories by now, and it’s normal to feel nervous. You don’t know what you don’t know.
However, current research shows that…
- Nearly 1 in 3 birthing families have a traumatic birth experience
- The national cesarean rate is over 30%
As a birth doula, I work to instill strength and reduce fear in pregnancy and birth.
I’m with you in your journey through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I provide information to help you ask questions and make informed decisions for your birth.
You need an experienced sage or guide to help you navigate the maternity care system in the United States. Birth is the foundational experience of life and is totally transformational. Would you run a marathon without training?
I want you to have the best experience possible so you can bring your baby into the world in the most gentle and nurturing way. I support clients as a doula in Buffalo and Rochester area hospitals, birth centers, and home births.
Let’s get started!

Birth Strategy Session
Let’s work together to get down and dirty into the heart of your desires for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. How do you want to feel? What are your dreams and desires? We can talk through your decision-making process and I can answer any questions you may have. I’ll point you in the direction of helpful resources to support your choices. This is an hour-long intensive meeting (in-person or via Zoom) that is all about planning your birth.
We got this! We’ve planned and prepared for this day. Rest assured that you have everything you need already inside you. Need someone to help you stay comfortable through contractions? I’m there. Need someone to help you relax into your birth? I’m there. Need someone to remind you how strong you are? I’m there.
We’re ready to dive in. You’ll leave these meetings fully prepared to plan your birth experience and make informed decisions for your family. We’ll get to the bottom of what you really want for your birth and your baby. What is it that you want but are afraid to ask for? How do you want to feel?
In these meetings, we sort through your deepest desires and concerns for your experience. You’ll leave feeling powerful and ready to navigate whatever may come your way. We work together to plan ideas for comfort in labor and create the peaceful birth you’ve been dreaming about.
