Welcome to Blooming BellysWelcome to Blooming Bellys and congratulations on your “blooming belly”. Please take a few moments to explore the site and learn about some options available to you. Pregnancy, birth and postpartum are amazing times in a couples’ life. It is a journey that can be confusing and seemingly limited choices or it can be empowering and filled with love and joy. My goal is to help the two of you navigate this precious time.

Birth Philosophy

Throughout the ages women have been giving birth with the support of their relatives and friends. Nowadays most of us don’t have family readily available to give us the support we need during this exciting time. Yet having a child is a life altering event that involves a host of physical, emotional and hormonal changes. It’s nice to know there is someone that can help make the process smoother and more enjoyable.

As your childbirth educator and/or doula, I will help educate and prepare you for the birth process so that you will be confident in your ability to navigate your unique path towards birth.

Doula Philosophy

When serving as your birth doula, I will be there to support you throughout your pregnancy when you have questions, as well as through the birth, providing comfort and support to both you and your partner so that you can welcome your baby with joy.

Once you and your partner have welcomed your baby into this world, I will assist you (as a postpartum doula) with integrating your baby into your family.
