DONA certified birth doula, freelance writer, and prenatal yoga teacher serving birthing families in the Saint Paul/Minneapolis area and around the world via Clarity. Honored to be invited into such an important moment in a family's story.
As a DONA certified birth doula, I can talk through all aspects of labor and delivery, as well as the immediate postpartum period. I can assist with writing a birth plan, discussing the ins and outs of what labor looks and feels like, and help define any medical interventions and tools that your care team (OB, midwife, nurses) may suggest. My job leading up to birth is to help my clients find their voice so they are ready to advocate for themselves in the delivery room.
I have attended births that were unmedicated, VBAC, water birth, medicated via epidural, cesarean, hypnobirth, meditative, highly active.
I have experience working with families who have experienced previous loss and/or trauma, moms over 40, single moms, GBS positive, and many other unique situations.
