In addition to being a birth doula, I am also a Mom with a busy family. I hope to be adding pictures and changing this page as fun and interesting things happen to us. I don’t pretend to be a writer, so please be kind if a typo pops up once in a while and I have the occasional run on sentence!
I have 3 children: Ben born in 1992, Zoë in 1995, and Isobel in 1997. I guess I should say I have 3 almost adult children. Oh my, how time flies. Yes, I know everyone tells you that but truly, take it from me, it does.
My Husband and I moved from Brookline, MA back in 1992 when I was 6+ months pregnant with Ben. As my husband, Alex tells it, “We had a major move, a job change, I became a dad, and turned 30, all in the same year!”
I was lucky to have three natural hospital births. I say “lucky” because once my labor started, it didn’t stop until the baby came. Although I didn’t have a doula back then, I did have one friend that was with us for all three births, and I just kept adding more friends with the last two babies. All the support made all the difference for me and Alex. All of this happened before I became a doula. If I were to have had a 4th child, we would have chosen to birth the last one at home with a doula, but only three were in the Grand Plan.
