I am a compassionate, patient and empathetic Birth and Postpartum Doula from the Grimsby/West Lincoln area who has a special place in my heart for supporting FIRST and Second-time birthers.  My “superpower” lies in the ability to hold space without judgment, while allowing you to express yourself freely and authentically.

As your doula, I promise to accompany you through every twist and turn of your journey toward parenthood; from the intimidating to the exciting.  I’ll be there to assure you that you can overcome just about any challenge. Whether it’s helping you navigate the sensations of birth or being a safe place to share your emotional/physical overwhelm of the first few weeks of postpartum.

I am a home-educating mom of 5 amazing humans and wife to ONE husband 🙂 I have training in Social Service Work and Trauma-Informed Support.  I have extensive personal and professional knowledge in prenatal and postpartum care, infant feeding, and parenting.

Expect not only practical support but also heartfelt celebrations of your achievements. And if you’re up for it, I might even bust out a spontaneous song and dance to add some joy to the mix.

All to ensure you experience birth and/or postpartum Your Desired Way!
