Hi, I’m Grace, a certified professional birth doula in the Valley of the Sun. My goal is to provide experienced, evidence based, and individual support to birthing women and their families. I attend births at hospitals, birth centers, and homes. I enjoy supporting women in their desires for their birth experience, whether that is an unmedicated birth or a birth using an epidural. My motto is always "follow mom's lead"!
I began working with pregnant women when I was in college where I started forming a passion for supporting women in their vocations as mothers. Later, I worked in a home of hospitality for homeless pregnant women where I realized the importance of supporting women through pregnancy, birth, and the post-partum period. I clearly
saw that if a woman was supported during her birth by being treated with love, dignity, and respect it would have a lasting impact on her and her child.
My natural interest in birth and passion for supporting mothers led to me to pursue doula training and certification through DONA International in 2012. Since my initial training I have been blessed by attending a variety of births in different settings. I feel deep joy and privilege to be a part of each family's unique birth story. My hope is to continue to empower and support women and their families so they can build a strong foundation for their lives with their new babies.
When I am not attending births I enjoy swing dancing, gardening, and thrifting for vintage clothing. I love my dog Fernando, folk music, and babies. When you reach out let me know if you have anymore questions about me. I'll be happy to answer them!
