Welcome to Charleston Birth Doula. I am so excited that you are here, because you are unique and I can’t wait to hear your story. I crave that you keep your autonomy as you transform into parents, and the best way I can serve this mission is to advocate evidence-based information while remaining unattached to the decisions that you choose. If you want to be empowered to pave your own story while benefiting from 14 plus years of experience and over $25,000 in education, click on the appropriate link below and learn more about how I can serve you during your childbearing year.
Finding the right provider for your family is hard, being told you need to search out another provider to cover the gaps in eduction is frustrating. When you decide to work with me towards your birth and wellness goals you are not only hiring me for your time, you are hiring over 14 years of experience and $25,000 in education to ensure you receive the most comprehensive services possible, and the least potential to need a secondary practitioner.
