My role in community is one of caregiving, through and through. The ability to help discern the needs of those I support is in my every breath. Every birth experience and family transition is a magnificently unique experience that should be held as such. There are no rights or wrongs when it comes to you and your family's needs. There is only the path forward and the assurance that you are doing everything you can to meet this new experience in parenthood with all of your love and energy. I set my sights solely on being a positive, confident, reassuring presence during seasons of deep transition and joy. My job is to be a support person who listens completely to your desires for your birth and family and then hold those wishes with you and for you throughout. I am there to offer grounded, confident energy when plans shift and adjust to meet you and your family's needs. I am there to help seek out your needs and respond to them when you need a change. I'm there in those new moments of parenthood when you need reinforcements. I am there for YOU.
