Hi! I'm Victoria - your Podcast Host!

I am a DONA International certified birth doula and have been attending births since 2016.

My doula philosophy is:

"I believe the best doulas are students of human nature and intuitive to the needs of others. My goal as a doula is to ensure everyone on your birth team is supportive and united around your agenda and needs for birth. I am focused on your physical and emotional wellness, the physiologic needs of your labor, your dignity and respect. I find success in forging relationships between all members of the birth team in order to center care around my clients in a collaborative way. As a birth doula, I believe in my responsibility to give you the factual information I have acquired about birth and maternity care practices in our local context. I will speak with truth, honesty, and compassion as I strive to offer gracious and nuanced perspectives."

I am married to an incredibly supportive husband and mom to four (yes, FOUR!) delightful daughters. Professionally, I am interested in seeing maternity care options improve my local community. I believe in the power of fostering relationships to positively impact the birth care team. You can find me enjoying homemade lattes and attempting DIY projects in my Berea home.
