I was born and raised in Little Rock. After living in Northwest Arkansas for eight years where I became a licensed massage therapist in 2001 and began my first doula training in 2003. I returned back with my family in 2006, and became a certified doula with Birth Works in 2007 . My husband and I have three beautiful children, Eli, Kyah, Hobbs, and we’re expecting baby #4 in March 2015!
My first birth experience with my son was in the hospital, complete with all the routine interventions. In the end, I had a healthy baby boy, but a terrible birth experience. A year later, I was invited to attend a close friend’s home birth. As I witnessed my friend give birth to her son in a gentle, loving environment, I was simply amazed at the difference from my own experience and what a beautiful event birth can be.
I took a doula certification training through DONA shortly after that. It was there where I first began to learn about the perfect way a woman’s body works in labor, and all the options a woman had in the hospital-options I wish I had known about in my own birth! Since then, I have been privileged to help with over 100 births in the home and hospital, and have had two wonderful home birth experiences!
I realized firsthand what an enjoyable, empowering experience giving birth can be when you take charge of your own body and seek to have the kind of birth that is just right for you. I love guiding women and their families through preparing for this life-changing event, and helping them to fully enjoy and appreciate this special time in their life.
