About Me:

Once upon a time we lived in close knit communities where we could support each other and glean the wisdom of our elders to move through life's transformations. Today we are more separated then ever from that kind of support. We brave the shifts in life like small ships sailing through vast waters. Some of us are lucky to have other ships to sail these seas with us, traveling hull to hull when we need to focus our attention on matters more pressing than steering. As a Full Circle Doula I accompany you along your journey, shoring up periphery affairs so that you can focus on what needs your attention most. I make a commitment to act with love, compassion and patience, wisdom and humility to empower each family to move through the adventure of birthing. I commit to giving you my full attention during your labor, leaving my own agenda at home. I commit to treating you and your partner with the utmost respect, dignity, courtesy, honesty and confidentiality. I can be as hands-on or as hands-off as you need and desire. This is your day. I am here to do everything in my power to make it everything you hoped it would be. I have worked alongside Doctors, Nurses, Midwives and family members with ease and harmony. I am comfortable in any setting, from fully attended births to just mom and I.

Fee Details:

I believe every family deserves the compassionate and knowledgeable support a Doula offers through the birthing process. To make it available to as many people as I can, I offer a sliding fee scale, from barter to full price. I ask that every client consider honestly what they can afford and honor the exchange. Please keep in mind that I may not always be able to accommodate requests for reduced fees. $900 is the fee for the standard Birth Doula package. Any services or travel beyond that will change that amount. If you desire fewer services than the standard package, the fee will be reduced. Please contact me for more information regarding the other services I offer and to discuss sliding scale adjustments. Blessed Birthing!!
