Certified RootsChildbirth Instructor

     

I have a passion and a heart for women and their growing families. My first daughter, Olivia, was born via c-section on August 15, 2006. In those moments my life changed forever and I was filled with a deep longing to help other mothers during this precious time. Not sure how to make this passion a reality, I dove into my role as a new mom and prayed for further direction. In 2010 I began to really research and prepare for a vbac (vaginal birth after cesarean) when I became pregnant with my second daughter. It was during this time that I learned about doulas and the support they gave to women before and during childbirth. My doula was paramount in helping me plan and prepare for Vivian's birth. Due to high blood pressure my midwife recommended an induction, which ultimately led to another c-section. Vivian was born safely on August 6, 2011.

 

After Vivian's birth, I spent a lot of time really educating myself on what my options would be for my next birth. The passion for serving other women was reignited and I began helping others prepare for their vbacs but did not take on a role as an official doula.

Then at home on June 19, 2014 my son Elijah Jude made his debut. I received much prayer and support during each of my pregnancies that my heart longed to give away what had been given to me. I am currently working towards my doula certification through the McDoula Certification Program and am the administrator of the Williamson County Birth Community Facebook group. I am passionate about empowering women and serving them as their families grow. It is truly an honor to be invited into a family's birthing suite and I hope to aid you on your journey! I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 8 years. We are currently living in Thompson's Station and are homeschooling our oldest.
