Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula
Vicky is a doula who has a way of making other women feel safe, cared for, and empowered. Her life experiences have shaped her into the perfect blend of a strong, incredibly warm-hearted, and dependable woman. These attributes make her the type of friend and doula you want standing beside you while you are at your most vulnerable – giving birth and mothering a newborn. Vicky believes it is important that her clients feel heard and validated throughout their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
Vicky’s first big life experience happened shortly after birth. Vicky’s father served in the United States Airforce and although she was born in New York, military life quickly relocated their family to Italy for five years. Spending the first part of her early childhood in Italy has given her a deep appreciation for her Italian roots, diverse cultures, and the love to travel. Since her families move back to the States, she has happily called Bellevue, Nebraska home.
At the young age of 16, Vicky’s mother passed away. This painful loss and loving memories of her mother are at the core of her deep belief in the importance of family and family support. Her mother’s passing without a doubt has shaped her into the matriarch she is today.
In 2011, Vicky and her highschool sweetheart married and since have added three beautiful little girls to their family. Vicky understands first hand how important and invaluable a support system for birth and parenthood is. At a year postpartum with her oldest, Vicky realized the feelings she had been wrestling with for many months was postpartum depression. It was an eye-opening experience for her and she knew that she needed the support of other caring women around her when she had her younger two girls.
Having always had a love for education and medicine, she knew she wanted to be in the medical field in some way. She decided to become a Pharmacy Technician and Certified Nursing Aide. While she loved working with patients, she missed the ability to deeply connect with them on a personal level. This void is where she found that her true calling was to be a birth and postpartum doula. Vicky is a Certified Postpartum & Infant Care Doula and Certified Birth Doula, seeking the highest level of credentials with the most respected training and certifying doula organization.
When Vicky is not caring for a doula family, you can find her with her husband and their three adorable little girls. As a family, they love being outdoors- camping, being at the lake, staying active, and s’mores campfires. She is a proud military & law enforcement wife and enjoys podcasts, binging watching Netflix, and singing like no one is watching.
