Feed the Babes, LLC was founded to support women during birth and beyond and to meet the growing need for labor support in our community. It is now widely recognized that choosing to add a labor support person to one’s birth team can yield many positive benefits.
A woman’s memories of her birth experiences last a lifetime and can have powerful effects on her self-esteem and confidence. I am committed to helping women and couples feel empowered and supported as they experience birth.
It is my goal to help mothers learn to trust in their beautiful, strong bodies and to trust in birth. The moment that a baby is born is joyous, magical, and wondrous, and it is my wish for mothers and their partners to experience the birth of their babies as fully as possible.
It would be an honor to have the opportunity to share this time of great joy with you. I will work to support you to birth in awareness, where you feel confident, informed, and surrounded with care, love, and respect.
