I am a woman who is inspired by nature, who is passionate about everything I do, and who seeks to inspire the world. It is why I spend most days working alongside an amazing team of 30+ experts and leaders in fertility, pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period at The WOMB™. We work together to create an environment that is healing, loving and supportive. It is also why I became a doula in 2006. I am inspired by the moment a new mother realizes how courageous and strong she has been during birth – that moment she believes it fully in her every cell and cries, “I did it!” I marvel at the moment a father or partner sees their baby for the first time. That first breath, first cry and the overwhelming awe that fills him or her. I’ve seen partners buckle to their knees, cry, laugh or have to sit down from awe and joy. It is the most incredible miracle to witness birth – every time – no matter the type a birth a family experiences. Having birthed 5 children myself, I know that the most important thing mothers need from me, as her Doula, is my unwavering belief that “she can do it” – despite the pain, the doubt, fears or what anyone else says. When the intensity increases, mothers need mental and spiritual strength from me – in a hospital room, at home in a tub, or under the lights of an operating room giving birth by caesarean. And in order to do that, I am the vessel through which strength flows, to help mothers sustain the continuous, consistent focus and love they need through birth.
