About Elizabeth

My passion for birth began the day I learned I was pregnant with my first. I learned all that I could, determined to have a natural birth experience. 24- hours into labor I opted for an epidural. I stand by my decision, but wanted a natural birth even more with my second. After countless more hours of training and research, I felt prepared and confident.  I gave birth to my second, naturally, without pain, and in 3 hours from start to finish. 

Six months later I was attending my sister's VBAC

 birth as her doula and knew this was the job for me.


I believe that women are made to birth. I would be honored to guide you through your birth and help you feel mindful, calm, and empowered. 

Baby's Hand

As a doula, it is my job to give full and unwavering physical, emotional, and spiritual support. Whatever your birth plan looks like, I believe you hold the power within you to succeed.

Frequently Asked Q uestions

What is a Birth Doula?

A birth doula is a professional who provides emotional, physical, and informational support to a woman and her partner before, during, and after childbirth. They are not medical professionals, but rather serve as a continuous presence and advocate for the birthing person, helping them to have a positive and empowering birth experience. Doulas may provide comfort measures such as massage, breathing techniques, and positioning suggestions, as well as help with communication and decision-making during labor and delivery.
