Specialties: Low-risk, VBAC, High-risk, diabetes during pregnancy (Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Gestational Diabetes) My journey to become a birth doula started before I became pregnant with my first baby. I knew that I wanted to have an un-medicated birth, and having Type 1 Diabetes would make it harder to achieve. During my research I realized that many women don’t know their options during childbirth and many don’t even realize they HAVE options. After having my eyes opened into this magical world of birth I could not close them again, nor did I want to. I want to help every woman feel empowered, supported, knowledgeable, and excited for the birth of their baby.
