BACK UP BIRTH DOULA
I'm a DONA-certified doula practicing in the Northern Virginia/northern Shenandoah valley area. I am also a very blessed wife, mom of 11, and grandma of 8. I’m currently pursuing certification as a postpartum doula with Birth Arts International. In addition I attend several out-of -hospital births each month as a midwife’s assistant, and am about halfway through the PEP process to become a Certified Professional Midwife.
I loved birthing my own children, and since they were small I have had an interest in caring for moms and babies. I am continually amazed at God's wisdom and love demonstrated in His design of childbearing.
My other interests include (but are not limited to!) gardening, sewing, quilting, sustainable agriculture, and Scottish country dancing.
