A doula is a non-medical companion who educates, informs, and supports a birth giver mentally, physically, & emotionally before, during, and after childbirth. I focus on the needs of the expecting birth giver, allowing them to have a memorable and empowering birth experience.

My mission is to guide and support birth givers by amplifying their voices regarding communication with medical providers. Birth is a beautiful transitional period. My goal is to make sure that each family feels at ease, comfortable, safe, and protected. As your doula, I provide holistic guidance and support during the most sacred time of your life. I consider you a whole person including the body, mind, spirit, and emotions. Every birth matters because this is a memorable experience that will live on with you for the rest of your life so it should go as desired. I am affiliated and trained with the National Black Doulas Association (NBDA).
