always made with a simle

I knew I wanted to devote my life to encouraging and supporting others. I just didn’t know how until, a local doula gave a presentation in my undergraduate psychology class. She talked about her experiences helping expectant families. I was captivated by her and felt truly inspired that doula work could be my calling too. In July 2013, I had the honor of completing a CAPPA Labor Doula training with Crystal Sada. I loved my training because it felt like an initiation into an ancient sisterhood of women dedicating themselves to serve growing families. My wish for every birthing family is for them to see their strength, feel safe and supported, build a trusting relationship with their medical team, and have a positive birth experience.

 

In January 2015, I resigned from my position as a mental health professional to launch Orange Blossom Doula Services for the opportunity to be a full time CAPPA certified labor doula and educator. It is amazing following my heart to create a successful career, encouraging families to make informed choices to birth with confidence, love, and support
