Birthing Through Traumas 

I specialize in supporting through traumas! I offer resources, information or even just a listening ear when needed to help you through your traumas. Utilizing my personal experiences with healing through my own traumas and my knowledge in birth-work, I make it my mission to help YOU reclaim your power and be confident in YOU!

Childhood Traumas: Birthing as a childhood abuse survivor can bring back many triggers. My role as your doula is to help guide you through those feelings comfortably and helping you address and work through them, so they don't affect your birth or postpartum. As a survivor myself, I can relate to your fears and be a safe place for you. Anything discussed between you and I, is confidential! 

 

VBAC and Birth Traumas: C-sections, inductions, and traumatic births can cause traumas of their own, especially if it was unplanned. My goal is to help you through these fears and give you as much information to make informed decisions for yourself as well as be confident in those decisions. I will also advocate for you and make sure you are heard and respected. 

 

As a trauma-informed doula, my focus is on empowering women to discover their inner strength while being a steadfast advocate when needed. Guiding women through their unique journeys, I help them navigate and persevere through past traumas to ensure a positive birthing experience. My approach involves assisting women in managing fears and triggers, offering support to ease anxieties. Having personally overcome trauma, I draw from my experiences to teach valuable skills that have aided me in my own births. My healing home birth was a transformative experience where I reclaimed my power and decision-making. I understand the significance of women feeling in control of their bodies and decisions. My goal is to empower women to voice their preferences and say no to anything that makes them uncomfortable. I strive to instill confidence, allowing each woman to feel in charge of her birthing journey. It's not about holding onto power but understanding when and whom to trust, ensuring an empowering and liberating experience. Healing is a process, and with guidance and support, it becomes more manageable. I am here to provide that support, always mindful of your unique experiences, ensuring you feel heard, valued, and encouraged throughout your journey.
