Oddly enough, when I was growing up, I never pictured myself having kids.  Then I had my first baby and the rest, as they say, was history.  I absolutely loved being pregnant and being a mom, which is a good thing since we went on to have a total of six babies!  There are 17 years between our first and our last and that makes for an interesting and exciting household, filled with a wide range of emotions, experiences and joy.

After running a home daycare for 15 years, and just before the birth of our sixth child, I decided it was time for a change.  When I sat down to think about what I would do next I realized that being a doula would allow me to do what I love; work with mothers and babies, witness the miracle of birth and pass on some of my knowledge to others just starting on their parenting journey.  I absolutely love what I do!
