Essential Beginnings


I provide birth and ante/postpartum doula service to women in the areas of Hillsborough, Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Greensboro NC. With a strong sense of community I strive to bridge the gap of emotional and physical support to laboring mothers during birth and into their postpartum phase that is lacking in our modern culture. By understanding the needs of both mother and partner it is my goal to help you achieve the birth experience you desire and to help guide you on your path to parenthood. 

I work in partnership with Angela Towers for Birth Doula services. When hiring me, you receive the care of two doulas! Your consultation and two prenatal meetings are with both of us, we share the on-call responsibility for your birth, and your postpartum support is provided by the doula who attended your birth. You get the benefit of seamless, professional labor care along with our combined experience and skills to cover your needs.

In addition to my doula services I make products for mother and baby in the ante and postpartum period. I utilize 100% pure and, when possible, organic ingredients to create safe and soothing products that can help support a healthy family.
