"In 2014, while attending graduate school in Colorado, my partner and I got pregnant. Since then my whole world has been transformed into using my passion about birth and babies to support women throughout this incredible journey of motherhood.
Through the hands of my knowledgeable midwife, supportive doula, and amazing husband, I had my baby girl at home. That experience showed me how much the female body is capable of, and how if supported correctly and allowed to do what it was designed for, women can bring their babies into the world by embracing birth."
