Hi, I'm Andrea

I married my high school sweetheart in 2007 and we have 3 children together. 1 girl and 2 boys. I am a birth and postpartum doula, placenta encapsulation specialist,  Hypnobabies Hypno-doula, and a Certifed Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor. 

I am a believer in Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. 

I graduated from Iowa Western Community College with a Medical Assistant Certificate in 2009. I worked in a local family practice office after graduating until I came home to stay with my oldest.  Since then I have been home with my children.

I found doula work when I was researching how to have a successful VBA2C.  My 1st two children were born via cesarean births and I really wanted to acheieve my desire of having a vaginal birth. I found my local ICAN chapter and there they recommended I find a doula to support me and my husband with my VBA2C. I found a very lovely doula who helped us  immensely! After fully realizing what a birth doula was and did I knew this career was for me.  

Since January 2015 I have been supporting mamas during pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum as a doula. I take my job very seriously as I LOVE what I do. I feel having a doula's support will provide the mom and dad with comfort, encouragement,  added education and love during an exciting and emotional time.
