About

Uptown Doula
Charlotte, NC

Bio: I am a southern girl at heart who loves hiking through the North Carolina mountains, long-distance running and trying new local craft beers. I have three very active young kids who think their mom is the coolest because she is a doula. Avery is the oldest of the three. She was born April 2012 and less than 16 months later we welcomed our second daughter, Harper who was born August 2013. My girls are the best of friends and recently welcomed their baby brother into the family July 2016. I often get asked about my birth experiences and how they help me be a great doula. Each birth was unique to one another. My water broke with my first daughter and ultimately she was born 21.5 hours later with the help of forceps. My second daughter was almost born in the car but we ended up making it to the hospital just in time and I delivered her 100% naturally. Finally, my son, Jonas was born with Trisomy 21 or better known as Down syndrome. We found out about his condition when I was 20 weeks pregnant and decided it was best to have him induced at 39 weeks so we could make sure he arrived safely and we were at a hospital that was able to fully support him when he made his appearance. After a long day of labor, we found out Jonas wasn’t strong enough to handle the pushing process, and he was born via emergency cesarean section.
