It’s a big day for me! I’m celebrating these three gorgeous kiddos and their rockstar parents! I‘ve been blessed to meet many doula babies. Babies that I witnessed their first breath, parents strength and love and been honored to watch those kiddos grow into such amazing little humans. As you can see here, I’ve even witnessed second doula babies a couple times over the years. But the sister of these cute kiddos is my very first, third doula baby. Wowzas! Y’all. When I say that it just brings me to tears … I’m not exaggerating. Its a BIG deal and a tremendous honor to me to be chosen to serve ..read more

Ya'll ..... Seriously .... This is what dreams are made of for me. I've waited so very long for this moment! Since the very first time that I saw Spinning Babies techniques used by other birth professionals at a birth to make space in the pelvis to help baby navigate in their journey ... I was hooked. I read and studied like I always do. Ordered books and materials to learn more and intended to learn all there is to know about the Spinning Babies approach. It still wasn't enough for me. I'd waited for what seemed like forever on a workshop that was close enough for me to attend AND worked wit ..read more

What better way to celebrate and kick off International Doula Month than to talk about some of the benefits of hiring a doula?

Let's talk Butt Stuff! Hemorrhoids in pregnancy & after! | Bowling Green, KY Birth Doula, Educator

What did you think we were talking about? You have to have a sense of humor to talk about hemorrhoids and literal pains in the butt.

It's hard for some folks to admit or accept, but I'm willing to make a fool of myself and have a photo of my own butt on the internet holding up a help sign, FOREVER, so that you can have a laugh and also so you don't have to suffer through without knowing the basics and how to soothe the pain in your behind. Again, we're talking about hemorrhoids, not your nosy neighbor. (If y ..read more
