My birthing journey has led me to you
Hello! I'm a Doula here in Kitsap County, WA, here to support families in their birthing journeys throughout Western Washington and beyond.
I was raised in Bremerton, as my Dad served over 20 years in the Navy. After graduating high school and traveling around (sure I'd leave Bremerton behind) I went to college in Maine. I moved back home and dug my roots in a little deeper. I am married, have a son, a cat, dog, chickens, and salt & fresh water fish.
My birthing journey included using a Midwife and planned to birth at home though ended at Tacoma General with a cesarean. I have overcome battles with breastfeeding, endured perinatal mood & anxiety disorders as well have an auto immune disorder.
My interest in doula work started with my own birth experience, but grow after supporting a dear friend during her first birth. I have much to thank her for, including encouraging me to be there for other birthing families. Like many others, my life has had big learning curves, with switchbacks and turns I wasn't expecting. But hindsight is 20/20 right?
It was all worth it because it all has led me to you!
