Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy! Here’s a little introduction to who I am and how I came to be a doula! I was raised Emmett, Idaho, I have an amazing husband named Devin, and a rambunctious toddler named Griffin. In nursing school, I had a course that introduced me to pregnancy, labor, and birth. It quickly became my favorite subject and led me to listening to HUNDREDS of birth stories on my podcast app. I continued to learn about pregnancy and birth and shortly after my newfound obsession, I became pregnant! Go figure! After I graduated nursing school and had my son, I became a birth assistant for a local midwifery practice. So, although I am new to the doula community, I have been supporting births for over a year! I felt a strong calling and fascination to birth work, so I became a doula. As a doula, I want women to know their options for birth and feel supported. I want women to feel empowered by their birth. I want to be the person that helps facilitate it. I’ve always had the desire to help women and being a doula perfectly aligns with that. Caring for women and their family in such a sacred, transformational time in their life is an honor. It’s exactly what I want to do, it’s what I’m great at, it’s my passion. Thank you for your consideration and I hope to join you on your journey!
