I was drawn to this line of work after experiencing my own challenging, yet empowering journeys of pregnancy and parenthood. I look back and see the ways that I succeeded, as well as the ways that I struggled. I became determined to improve the quality of care and support during the childbearing years.
My greatest pleasure as a Doula is witnessing women become confident & excited about the birth of their baby.

"Having Amy at our births gave us peace. We trust her, and we feel supported and empowered having her with us. She also captured the most beautiful, powerful, and precious moments on camera! We cannot say enough good things about Amy...
So wonderful through all 3 of our pregnancies, deliveries, and postpartum time."
