What is a Doula
A trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to a mother before, during, and shortly after childbirth to help achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
My Birth Doula Services are currently closed and I will not be taking any more pregnant clients because I am embarking on the long journey of becoming a midwife. These steps into midwifery have been so empowering and I am looking forward to being able to serve women in my community in this way. However, I am offering Postpartum care to new mothers in and around the Asheville area. See below for details.
Postpartum Care Package
Postpartum is such a crucial time in a mother’s life yet we tend to forget about it. Often times after giving birth a mother wont even be seen by her care provider until six weeks. I want this package to address the lack of nurturing and individualized care that we are forgetting after birth. This package is intended to be a gift that helps welcome her into this new phase of her life.
3 Postpartum Massages
Ritual of Closing of the bones
Education around Infant massage
Opportunity to talk about your birth experience
Herbal intake and formula of herbal tea
In Home Visits so you don’t have to leave your own home
Personalized compassionate care
The investment is $300
for the Postpartum Care Package
You can purchase this package by scrolling down to the very bottom and filling out the Contact Me Form. I will then send you an invoice via email so you can pay with Debit or Credit card or you can pay in cash on our first visit.
This would be a wonderful package to give a pregnant mother at her baby shower or blessingway, instead of baby clothes that will be outgrown very quickly. To purchase for someone else send me a message through the Contact Me Form and we can set it up for her in advance.

The endless fight for Women's Health
In January 2018, I collaborated with an Non Profit in Tanzania called Boma Africa where I worked with my colleague and doula Partner Charlotte Brielle at the Karatu District Hospital as a doula. The experience I received from this collaboration has propelled me into the next chapter of my life.
Which has lead to some exciting news!!! We have founded an organization called Wombs of the World, which is on a mission to support gentler births by connecting professional doulas with clinics around the World. We have programs in Tanzania and Ecuador. Women Supporting Women. To find out more about Wombs of the World you can go to our website www.wombsoftheworld.com
