"As a Doula and Childbirth Educator, I am able to give women the tools they need to empower themselves. I can teach them how to talk to their health care providers, and the right questions to ask. I find that the women I work with are more confident and are aware that they have options when it comes to giving birth. I am passionate about natural childbirth and breastfeeding, but as a doula, I will NEVER impose my views or values on you. I will not judge you or make decisions for you. If you have decided that an epidural is right for you, I will support you in that decision. If you want to have a natural unmedicated birth, I will help you achieve that through comfort measures and emotional support. I am here to help YOU have the type of birth that YOU want to have.” I serve any home birth within a 40 mile radius of Lilburn, Ga. I attend births at Dekalb Medical, North Fulton, Gwinnett Medical, Atlanta Medical, Piedmont, Northside and Emory Hospital.
