I am photographer and a Mama Nurture trained bereavement doula. I have a special interest in birth and birth photography and hope to certify as a birth doula and childbirth educator in the upcoming year. It is my belief that every woman has the right to decide what type of birth is right for her.
Being an intuitive and empathetic person, I feel called to serve people, and bereavement doula services really resonate with me. My hope is that every woman who needs to walk this journey will have access to the necessary resources and support to help her process her grief.
