Stephanie's Purpose


  As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I will cooperatively work to discover,  help resolve breastfeeding obstacles, provide resources and referrals for   issues, as well as support the family,  promote normalcy and provide education for the birthing and breastfeeding community.

As a Childbirth Educator, my goal is to prepare couples for a natural childbirth emphasizing nutrition, exercise and relaxation.  I teach the normal birth process and incorporate how partners can support women in labor.  It is important to me that couples be able to make informed decisions about pregnancy, labor, birth and ultimately the baby. 

As a Birth Doula, I serve families during the labor and birth process.  This includes everything from supporting the mother through traditional techniques and time-tested methods, to teaching and assisting the mother with relaxation and breathing, aromatherapy, accu-pressure, and massage and guiding her partner through the process.
