I am a doula with Birth Arts International. I am trained in birth physiology, Spinning Babies techniques for pain relief and labor modification, and various coping and relaxation methods (massage, hypnobirthing, essential oils, and acupressure). I became passionate about birth after having my daughter in 2012, with the support of my wonderful husband and doula, Julie Grove of Charm City Doula. I want to support families in this important time, and to help you achieve the birth you desire.
