I knew that I wanted to help other women achieve their ideal birthing experience after discovering what an amazing and empowering event it was to become a mother myself. After a lot of research and a ton of contemplating, I decided to support women as a doula. There is no greater honor than being invited to help support women as they become mothers.
I spent an extensive amount of time finding a training organization that emphasized on the things that were important to me;
Supporting women and their decisions without judgement
Working along with partners, not in place of them
Building positive relationships with healthcare providers
I was thankful to find Prodoula, a training organization for the modern doula. Not only did they provide me with top notch doula training, but continue to provide me ongoing education and training.
I am a wife and mother of two beautiful girls. I am a native of Louisville, have lived in several states and made Meade County my home in 2007.
Becoming a Doula was not a decision I took lightly. Having completed both my Bachelor's Degree and Masters Coursework in Education, I was surprised to find myself feeling like my contributions to the world belonged elsewhere.
When our oldest was born, I was fortunate to be able to leave my position in the school district and stay home with her. Our birth experience with her was surrounded by misinformation, fear & lack of support. I knew then that there had to be a better way and research lead me to the discovery of doula work. I hired a doula for our second birth and was amazed at the difference in experiences.
Having personally experienced a birth both with and without a doula present, I knew that I wanted to help other women and families have more positive birthing experiences. Although this is not my first career, it is most certainly where I truly belong and I am so thankful that the birth of our own children helped lead me on to this path!
Wishing you a happy, healthy and empowering journey in to parenthood!
