Hi, I’m Abi.
I love being a doula! When I was pregnant for the first time I read a lot of books about birth. This continued to be an interest of mine as I prepared for the birth of my second child and then the third. I realized that I really wanted to help other women have a positive birth experience. I would say I am pretty passionate about birth work!
Did you know that your body is designed to give birth? I love helping women to really trust that our bodies are made to give birth, and to help alleviate fears associated with giving birth. I also want to support you in any kind of situation, whether you want/need medical interventions or not. Many don’t realize how helpful a doula can be for a cesarean-section birth as well!
Part of my job is to help you to become knowledgeable for the decisions you will need to make for your birth. I won’t make decisions for you. The best gift that I can give a client is my unconditional support, no matter what choices are made or how the birth goes.
I live in upstate New York with my husband, our 4 children, and sweet kitty named Buddy. In my spare time I squeeze in time for baking, running, playing Ultimate Frisbee, and reading/talking about spiritual things.
Can’t wait to join you on your journey to motherhood!
