Nice to Meet You!  I am a childbirth educator, doula, and certified lactation counselor. My goal is to teach families what informed consent/choice is.  I want families to know they have options on who they can hire to be their provider and they can choose what procedures are done while seeking medical care.  Only together can we increase the demand for better care and choices for our families.

I am the owner of Western Kansas Birthkeeping. I live in lacrosse, KS and serve families in western Kansas. I have a passion for helping families have a pleasant birth and breastfeeding experience. I offer doula services, breastfeeding support and placenta encapsulation. 


I'm a Registered Nurse and a labor doula located in Great Bend KS. I am very passionate about providing a safe space for mothers, partners, and families to welcome their little one. My goal as a doula is to help you feel heard, empowered and confident with your birthing experience. I commit to checking my personal beliefs at the door and being your biggest advocate!
