Certified Birth Doula

Statesville North Carolina

I believe birth is an extremely important part of a woman's life. Her experience can cause trauma or it can be empowering. When she feels safe and loved and her voice is heard she will feel like she can do anything! My desire as a birth doula is to guide my clients into acheiving the birth they want. Birth is very unpredictable but learning how to nagivate your choices and owning those choices helps you feel in control, even when things don't go as planned. 

When you hire me as your doula (birth OR post partum) you will have a caring friend. Agape means love. Not romantic love, but unconditional love, like our Creator has given us. I won't judge you for your choices, but I want you to know you have the power of your consent. I want to help you create the birth YOU desire. If you don't see something in the packages that you want, please contact me about designing a CUSTOM package for your unique needs. 

My Philosophy

Women's bodies were created for growing and birthing babies. I believe in quality nutrition and exercise during pregnancy and supporting normal physiological childbirth when possible. Women are capable of birthing their baby their way with little intervention from others. I believe in allowing a woman to trust her own intuition and let nature take over. Allopathic medicine should allow the mother to choose every intervention SHE is comfortable with. Medical intervention is great in certain circumstances, but only when medically needed or desired by the birthing woman.
