HOW I CAN HELP
I have a passion to help moms get the support they need during labor and to help moms have a voice during their labor and delivery and get the most ideal and safe birth they possibly can. I'm eager to help women who would like to try for a VBAC and desire to breastfeed. If a birth doula is something you are interested in Fruit of The Womb Perinatal Services will happily provide this service for you with a free consultation!
Let's prep you and your mind for birth. We go over birth concerns, birth plan, comfort measures and prepare for the big day!

UNLIMITED TEXT, PHONE AND EMAIL SUPPORT
Hit me up in my DM's! Got a question? Send me a text, message, or call me!
WHAT ARE YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH MEDICAL STAFF LIKE?
Respectful and Informative. However, I am willing to remind everyone in the labor room of your birth wishes and I'm not afraid to speak up if I see something that consent wasn't asked for!
DO YOU PERFORM ANY PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS?
Nooooppppeee. I am not a midwife or OBGYN. That is not within my scope of practice.
HOW WILL HIRING YOU AFFECT MY PARTNER’S ROLE DURING THE BIRTH?
No worries! I am there for them too! Dad and support people have concerns, questions, or just need a break. I offer coping suggestions to help them best support you and remind support people of how they can always ask questions or remind them of their own wishes during birth!
HOW MANY CLIENTS DO YOU TAKE A MONTH?
I currently take only two mom's a month! During the winter months, I don't take BIRTH DOULA clients but do have some exceptions for C-sections and some VBAC moms. If you want to work with me during the winter months you can join my prenatal coaching program! Join to list to get updates coming soon!
WHO ARE YOU NOT FOR?
I'm not really for the parents who:
Don't really care about how their birth ends
Not interested in breastfeeding or learning more about it.
Not into holistic health or healing
Okay with hospital routines and suggestions and don't want to go outside that.
Don't want to learn more about birth (feel knowing less is better)
Want to know my vaccination status
Currently specializing as a VBAC Doula, and also specialize in high-risk pregnancies, and premature babies.
ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN DOULA? DO YOU ONLY SERVE CHRISTIAN CLIENTS?
I am happily a Jesus lover! Christ is life. HOWEVER: I am called to serve all people and that is what I do. I have worked with Muslims, atheists, agnostics, etc. I do offer prayer and biblical encouragement to those who are Christ's followers and offer education and affirmations to my fellow sisters and brothers in Christ.
