She has been working with pregnant mothers since 2010 when she began her Massage Therapy career. Over the years of providing prenatal massages she became interested in birth work.

Regardless of where her clients choose to birth, She is passionate about helping to provide a positive birth experience by bringing physical comforts and emotional support. In conjunction with her yoga and massage background, she has a wide variety of breathing and massage techniques to offer to create a more relaxed & peaceful environment. If the mother wishes, she can also incorporate her Hypno-Doula techniques for mothers who are wishing to achieve any type of hypno-birth. Such techniques include using positive affirmations, guided imagery, deep relaxation, & childbirth hypnosis.
