I am the mother of three, and live in Sterling VA. I decided to begin my work in the childbirth field when I was pregnant with my second child in 2001. I was certified as a birth doula through DONA International in 2002, and served as the Northern Virginia Chapter Leader of International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN) from 2004 for five years. In the spring of 2005, I trained as a birth assistant with BirthCare, which has allowed me to expand my birth knowledge base and support midwives and their clients in out of hospital births. I attend an average of 2 births per month so as to be available to serve my clients the vast majority of the time. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, and am trained and certified in Neonatal Resuscitation, First Aid, and CPR. My fees range from $800 – $950. I may be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 571-969-3099.
