I am a wife and homeschooling mama of 4 sweet girls! I love fruit, reading multiple books at one time, spending time with my family and trying new foods. Birth, babies, mamas and providing solutions for my community fills my heart. I am so grateful that The Most High has allowed me to serve others at some of the most important times of their lives. I truly feel this is my purpose and being allowed to grow in it, has been nothing short of a blessing. Every time I am welcomed into someone's birth space, or trusted to help them make life changes I am completely honored to be by their side.
Why did I become a doula?
I chose to become a Doula after I had my daughter. During my birth as well as pregnancy, I felt that I was treated different. Many assumptions were made but I was never given a choice. When I did make it clear that I was informed to a certain degree, many were shocked and even asked me; "how do you know that?" or "what is your educational background?" At that point I wanted to do something about it but was not sure how. I wanted to be sure that no one was ever in my situation and always had an advocate as well as support. After much research, becoming a Doula was perfect! There were some things I wanted from my birth that I just didn't feel like I accomplished. I wish I had hired a Doula for myself because I truly believe I would have walked away feeling even better about my experience! My goal is to help mamas walk away from their births, saying "I felt loved, supported, empowered, and I made the best choices for myself and my baby."
Why health & wellness?
I was not always the "health nut" that people say I am. I ate anything and used anything. My boyfriend at the time ( and now amazing husband) was the one to encourage me to to take better care of myself. Can you believe it!? From there, it evolved. From learning the truth about food production, to understanding the dangers of what we apply to our bodies as well. Getting back to what The Most High created is key. Whole foods, herbs, oils, you name it. All created for us and for us to live in good health. Once I learned and applied these things, I COULD NOT keep it to myself. I would be doing a disservice if I did not share. I am all about helping you make changes to live a better life, especially our children.They are so important and impressionable. If you can make small changes with them now, they are sure to last a lifetime and they will pass what they learned to their children. These jewels of health can extend generations to come. I am a firm believer in breaking family cycles and eliminating need for the word "hereditary" to be associated with diseases and disorders.
