As far back as I can remember I have always been mesmerized by pregnancy! I first witnessed labor and delivery when I was only 12 years old! My mother gave birth to my baby sister, April. That moment is when I fell in love with tiny humans! It was a feeling that I couldn’t describe but knew I wanted more. Sadly, my little sister was born without kidneys; a rare and fatal condition known as Potter's Syndrome. April passed not long after her birth and even though I was devastated and may have not completely understood what was happening; I was most concerned for the well-being of my mother. Supporting my mom though such a difficult time was my biggest concern. Despite my baby sister gaining her angel wings; I had this incredible fire burning inside of me for all things pregnancy and birth.
Over the past 20 years I have been a part of many more births, including 3 of my own. With a Doula present for my third child Santiago, he was born via VBA2C (vaginal birth after two cesareans). Not long after that, another fire ignited that I could not ignore. My passion for birth all of these years became apparent. Birth became the one thing I now wanted to divulge my entire self into! And now here I am!
