Welcome to Potomac Birth Services!
Potomac Birth Services proudly serves families in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. I offer Birth Support, Postpartum Support, Certified Lactation Counseling, as well as education services.
I am excited to be part of your pregnancy journey and look forward to supporting you! No matter what type of birth you are planning; medicated, unmedicated, home or hospital birth, I provide respectful, continuous and compassionate support.
I support clients at the the following locations: Meritus Medical Center, Frederick Memorial Hospital, Frederick Birth Center, Chambersburg Hospital, Berkeley Medical Center, Carroll Hospital, Winchester Medical Center, Premier Birth Center, Inova Loudoun Hospital, and Midwife Assisted Home Births within 1 hour of Williamsport, MD.
Growing your family is an important life event and it is different for every family. I support ALL families through all different types of births and adoption with care and professionalism. I support your right to birth as you choose and are honored to be a part of your support team.
I am committed to providing support and continuous care throughout your pregnancy and birth through scheduled prenatal meetings, phone support, email support, and on call support from the start of our partnership. I will provide face to face labor support when your birthing day comes and remain with you for 1 to 2 hours after your baby is born to help get everone settled and resting comfortably before I leave. For the first month after your baby is born, I remain on call for phone and email support to help ease your family's transition.
I am a wife, mother of 5 amazing children, and a life-long learner. As someone who started my family young, I felt there was a severe lack of support for new and growing families. My role as a doula started early on with supporting friends and family before training as a professional doula and making my passion for supporting families my career. Over the years I have carefully crafted my practice to support families during the process of birth and adoption, and the postpartum period. Besides being a Labor and Postpartum Doula, I am a Child Birth Educator, Certified Lactation Counselor, Certified Passenger Safety Technician, and Certified Health Coach with an emphasis on pregnant and nursing moms. I also serve as a commissioner on the Washington County Commission for Women and serve on the board of directors for Hope Through Birth, a local non-profit that supports families who have been touched by pregnancy and infant loss.
