My goal is to instill confidence in parents by providing them with the tools and support they need from pregnancy to early childhood. My wish is that every mother gets to have the opportunity to birth her baby as she sees fit, to have her wishes heard and to feel supported and educated in all aspects of parenthood. I want to share my knowledge and practical sense approach to parenting in a way that promotes empowerment, readiness and success! I will do this using my experience as a Mother, a Montessori teacher, and Doula, while incorporating all the life skills I have learned along the way.....
Our birthing experience shapes the way we ease into parenthood. Everyone deserves to have a beautiful birthing journey. Knowledge is power. Preparation eases the fear and insecurities related to
birth.Having choices allows a woman's voice to be heard.The memories are lasting and impactful. Twenty four years later the memory of my first birth is clear and daunting. I was unprepared, emotionally and physically for what lay ahead. I felt overly reliant on my OBGYN, and never thought to question or explore other natural birthing options. When my beautiful daughter arrived four weeks early I didn't even have a blanket bought for her! I felt scared, overwhelmed, and unsure of what to expect....I struggled with breastfeeding at first, it was exhausting. Because she came so early we had only completed one birthing class! My husband and I supported each other and together we figured things out and began our journey into parenthood. How I wish I had known then what a blessing a doula could be! It feels like the perfect time for me to step into this role. A doula is the perfect solution , skilled and trained to provide the emotional and physical support needed. Working together with mom and her partner to prepare for labor, and delivery .... creating a safe secure environment for mom to prepare her well for the most incredible experience of her
life, motherhood.To be a part of this journey is my ultimate goal, sharing a lifetime of experience and providing you with the nurturing, tools, compassion and care you need to succeed as you welcome another beautiful soul into the world, this is my greatest wish!
I was born and raised in County Meath, Ireland in the midst of the beautiful Boyne Valley! I currently reside on Long Island, NY with my husband Eric and our three beautiful daughters, Rebecca 24, Chloe 21, and Hannah 15, otherwise affectionally known as "my little women!" My children are by far, my greatest source of joy and fulfillment. My role as a mother has exceeded my expectations and has been the most powerful and challenging teacher of all! My interests include, gardening, American history, interior decorating and singing. I am a long time member of the Greater Nassau Chorus of Sweet Adeline International. I'm passionate about my work with children especially newborns. I look forward to successfully navigating parents through the challenging and rewarding journey of parenthood.
