I offer birth & postpartum companion/ doula services within a 25 mile radius of Viroqua, WI in Southwestern Wisconsin.
This includes Vernon Memorial Hospital & towns including Coon Valley, Cashton, Gays Mills, Viroqua, LaFarge to Genoa & all in between.
I value being trustworthy, flexible & ever present to support your induvidual birth & parenting journey. Above all, your birth and family matters and I would be honored to walk along side you. I feel called into this work and appreciate the variety of births I’ve had the oppurtunity to attend.
In 2001 and 2002 I completed birth doula training with Doulas of North America (DONA) and the Association of Labor Assistants and Childbirth Educators (now ToLabor) .
I completed a beginning midwifery program with WomanCraft Midwifery in Massachusetts in 2004/05. I was employed as a postpartum doula at Cooley-Dickenson Hospital in Northampton, MA for 2 years. I am currently enrolled in a one year midwifery mentorship with MamaMuse. While my children are young I will intentionally keep a small & manageable birth companion practice. I can supply a detailed resume or answer any other questions, please just ask.
The best teachers have been the families and babies who have welcomed me into their lives at this most sacred and tender time, thank you. I am also thankful to the maternity care providers who have inspired and mentored me.
