I see you!
You're prepping the freezer meals and finishing up the nursery and folding all the tiny clothes...but are you prepping yourself?
That's where I come in!
From the first time we meet until your baby is born, we'll talk about how to prepare your mind, body, and soul for the epic work of labor and delivery. Maybe you're in to yoga and meditation. Maybe you're a runner who wants to stay active. Maybe you just need someone to bounce ideas, questions, and worries off. Whatever your vibe, we'll work together to get you ready!
By the time your baby is on the outside, I want you to feel like you made informed, confident, and respected choices and that you felt in control of your birth story from start to finish!
The story is yours to write; let's make it one you can't wait to tell!
A few more of my quirks...
My favorite food is pizza...it's an almost unhealthy obsession.
I'd rather be hot than cold any day!
Christmas Eve is my favorite day of the year.
I love a good latte, but given the option, I'll almost always choose a London Fog.
I have crazy wanderlust!
I get entrée envy every time I go out for dinner with someone.
Some would call me a sarcasm enthusiast (I'm a lot like Chandler Bing in that way).
I love all things Marvel and my favorite character is Steve Rogers.
I have nine tattoos and have at least four more I "need"!
Nice Things Some People Have Said About Me...
I am SO HAPPY we chose to have a doula involved in the birth of our second son in Japan. You want someone in your corner who you can be your most authentic self with, and I found that in Micah. She was a resource for information, an emotional sounding board, and cheerleader rolled into one person. Having Micah there strengthened the amazing connection between my husband and I. She was supportive, compassionate, an advocate, and basically a labor & delivery encyclopedia! I’d highly recommend her to other mamas for an informed, supported and empowered birth experience.
She was so easy to communicate with and provided me such essential support services both before, during, and after my birth experience that helped keep me prepared and confident that I was being looked after. She was calm, cool, and knowledgeable while also navigating what I wanted and what changes needed to be made as I progressed in labor.
