                         Dallas and Ft. Worth Doula  


 2013 * 2014 * 2015 

Welcome to Great Expectations!  I am sure you have great expectations for your little one(s) and are excited to meet the newest member of your family.  I am passionate about helping families prepare for and achieve a positive birth experience.  I am dedicated to supporting women through the life-changing event of birth, and I would be honored to accompany you on your journey to becoming a parent be it for the first or the fifteenth time.  

I will attend births anywhere in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and at births taking place in a hospital, a birth center or at home.  I feel very comfortable in each of these settings.  Over my years as a doula, I have attended over 300 births that have included the births of twins, VBACs, waterbirths, births with epidurals and without...and everything in between.  Each one is special and I still get teary watching the miracle of birth each time.

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you all the best in the birth of your baby!

"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength." -Barbara Katz Rothman
