Are you looking for a guide during your pregnancy and birth? As one of the most experienced doulas in the East TN area, I can help you understand why informed consent is my platform and why I believe the saying, “If you don’t know your options, you don’t have any.”In the year 2000 I received my certification as labor doula and quickly followed up with Childbirth Educator training. Shortly after those I trained as a postpartum doula and I chose CAPPA (Childbirth and Postpartum Professionals Association) for my trainings and certifications. I have attended over 300 births and numerous continuing education opportunities. In 2009, I attended an ICAN (International Cesarean Awareness Network) conference and realized that East Tennessee desperately needed a local chapter of this magnificent organization. In 2010, ICAN of Knoxville was born and I have found that this has rounded out my passion for helping women, specifically in the area of VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). My philosophy on birth is to support families in the birth they desire and deserve. My services are judgment free. My only agenda is to work to make certain you are happy with your experience and feel empowered, supported, and respected. No matter where or how you plan to birth, contact me for assistance in designing an experience you will cherish.
