Bridget believes that every birth story is a unique and beautiful story. Her passion is supporting the birth that YOU want to have! She understands that each woman makes birth choices that are best for their body, situation and family. Bridget's goal for each birth is for the client to have a supported and satisfying birth experience.
"I met Bridget shortly after my son was born. She was a huge support to my breastfeeding journey. Bridget helped me nurse my newborn in a carrier and when we had some problems, she was more than willing to offer suggestions and information so I could understand what might be the cause. I would highly recommend her to any new mom looking for a listening ear and support with breastfeeding challenges."
"I was originally against the idea of a Doula at the birth of our second child but my wife insisted. I was afraid that she (a Doula) would replace me in the delivery room. After the birth of our daughter, I thanked my wife over and over for making this decision for us. Bridget helped give me ideas and knew what my wife needed especially when I didn't know what to do next. We will be having a Doula at the birth of our next child!"
