We’re back!

This weekend we celebrated two years of birth work, from the very first birth I supported as a doula before I even started my training or launched Nurtured Birth.

Resolve to Shift

Is Your New Year's Resolution Failing? "Resolution" has become a scary word to me. I’ve made lots of resolutions that didn’t last beyond the first week of January.

Oh, You’re a Doula? That must be so family-friendly…

When I first opened my doula practice I was somewhat shocked to find that I received as many (if not more) messages from other women who wanted to become doulas as from pregnant women looking for a doula. I understand the attraction-- holding babies, witnessing births, the magical moments we get to experience over and [...]
