An end and a new beginning…
As I enter into apprenticeship as a student midwife, I will no longer be accepting new doula clients. This transition has been difficult as I am one of the last doulas still actively serving our corner of southeastern Kentucky. I am still accepting repeat clients, but will not be offering full coaching packages as I have in the past. While this is difficult to announce, I am certain that it’s the right choice for my and my family at this time. I am very much looking forward to the day when I can serve our community as a midwife.
My Call to Midwifery

After the birth of my first child, I knew without a doubt that I had missed my calling. I had searched for a midwife to care for me during a homebirth but the restrictive laws in my state meant there was a homebirth midwife shortage and I could not find one who served my area. So, I had driven over an hour to birth under the care of nurse midwives in a hospital setting. That experience and the compassionate care I received was something I wanted all women to be able to experience.
