Certified Birthing From Within Childbirth Educator & Doula Mindful Birth Services and Doula Care, LLC
Service Area Offering doula care, weekly childbirth education classes and birth mentoring PLUS postpartum doula care, birth circle gatherings and placenta encapsulation for families in SW Florida. FORT MYERS FL Work Phone: (239) 560-2403 Website:


I am proud to have earned my professional Doula Certification (2011) through Birthing From Within along with my Birth Mentor/Childbirth Educator Certification (2014). I am deeply rooted in the birth community in SW Florida, as a co-founder of the VBAC Advocates of Lee County (2013) and co-leader for the SW Florida Birth Network (2014-2015). In 2018 I expanded Mindful Birth Services into an all-inclusive doula agency. Having attended 100 births since 2010 I can confidently say you’re in good, experienced hands!

I provide something a little different by offering birth mentoring/coaching packages along with doula services . Think Life Coach, with a specific focus on pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. I’m most interested in working with clients who have BIG expectations and are motivated to put in the work to achieve BIG results.

I’ve often mused over the question: What do I enjoy more, teaching or providing doula care? It’s a tough call! I love teaching BFW classes and seeing the mind-shift and the confidence of my couples soar. I’ve mentored hundreds of couples in my classes since 2010. I take my training seriously and my clients reap the benefits. BFW places a strong emphasis on the emotional component of birth preparation, and this is an area of expertise that you’ll find as a huge benefit of taking a BFW class.

Your birth worries, excitement, skepticism, knowing too much and desiring to know more, it’s all normal! Best way to get started? Book your Discovery Call through my website, and we’ll deep dive together into YOUR birth preferences, needs and wishes.
