On the off-chance that I am unable to attend your birth (an unfortunate doula reality) I choose my back-up doulas carefully. I do guarantee you that I will be there if at all possible. Because I want to make sure that you have the best possible birth experience, I make sure that your backup doula is highly skilled and of the highest ethical and professional caliber.

I work with a small team of like-minded women who are highly trained and experienced and match my philosophy and style. I wholeheartedly trust and respect this group of carefully selected and amazing women. You're guaranteed an experienced, professional and wonderful doula.

The meet and greets are for our existing clients only.
You will receive an email reminder the week of the meet/greet. Please check your email the day of the meet/greet as sometimes due to births the meeting has to be rescheduled.

Because of the uncertainty of our birthing schedules there is a possibility that either myself or one of the other doulas will not be able to attend, but we still encourage you to come and meet the other doulas and make the connections. If you don't see me, look for a group of women chatting.
