Share your side of the story

I can tell you about my doula work all day long, but my clients are the ones whose opinion is most important. 

If you count yourself as part of my doula family and want to tell your story, here are two options:

1. Keep it short: Write a brief summary for the Testimonials page.

2. Tell it all: Share your whole birth story on the Blog page in the Birth Stories category.

Whichever you choose, I will be very grateful to hear your side of the story!

(Not a client of mine, but want to chime in? You are more than welcome to share your thoughts in the Guestbook.)

Welcome to Expecting New Life!

My doula work is thriving in Tennessee and I am thrilled to be serving women in Nashville, Clarksville and beyond.  My location offers me the unique opportunity to work in two metropolitan areas and serve a large population of women.  

I've learned that although Nashville has a large selection of birth doulas, there have been only a few serving Clarksville and Fort Campbell until recently, so please know that I am now available to work with you, whether you are giving birth at home, in a local hospital or even traveling to Nashville (as many of my Clarksville clients frequently do). Go to the Contact Me page to send me a message or learn other ways to reach me.

If you are looking for resources in New Orleans and have found me that way, I am more than glad to help!  Even though I no longer live in the area, it is my pleasure to help point you in the right direction.  Check out River Parishes Childbirth Education Services.  My dear friend, Jessica LeBlanc, teaches prepared childbirth classes at Touro, as well as offering doula services as part of the Nola Nesting doula collective.  If you are a past client of mine and are needing a doula for a current pregnancy, I wholeheartedly recommend Jessica to you! 

Here's a sneak peek of what you'll find here....

CHILDBIRTH CLASSES:  A good time to attend a childbirth class is around the beginning of your 3rd Trimester. Get more details on class content and register here.  Private classes are available at any time. We can meet at your home, on your schedule.  Group classes will be scheduled based upon demand.


PRENATAL BELLY HENNA:  A unique way to celebrate the beauty of the pregnant form is through the art of temporary henna tattoos

Henna is a natural plant-based pigment that is made into a paste and applied to the skin, which then leaves a temporary stain on the skin after it dries. 

The designs can be simple or symbolic - the choice is yours. 

Beautiful to have done prior to a maternity photo session, this would be a fun addition to a baby shower or Mother Blessing / Blessingway Ceremony, too.


DISCOUNTS FOR DOULA SERVICES:  There are a number of deals available - bartering, payment in full discount, sliding scale, military specials


CLARKSVILLE BIRTH COMMUNITY:  Have you joined the Clarksville Birth Community yet?  Over 600 women have become members since December 2011!  There is always a lively discussion going on.  It's a private group where you can ask questions and get answers from professionals and fellow moms alike, share your experiences, learn something new, and be treated with respect.  Join our group on Facebook to stay current and participate in ongoing conversations. 

Essential Oils Events

doTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS:  What's the big deal about essential oils?  Wouldn't you rather use natural products to care for your family that support wellness instead of products that come with a long list of scary side effects?  We have weekly events in Clarksville that all are welcome to attend.  Send me a message requesting details, as they update too often to post here. If you would like to host an event in your home, let me know!  You can purchase Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils via my website.  Contact me to learn about special offers and discounts.  Go to this page to read more about essential oils and also join my group on Facebook.


Contact me about future dates and/or private consultations.  Learn how doTERRA essential oils can benefit you during pregnancy, childbirth, and afterwards!  doTERRA essential oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade and of the highest quality.  I use them with my family and my Birth Doula clients.  We will discuss how the benefits go far beyond just smelling pretty!  Babes in arms welcome at all meetings.  Resources such as mini-kits, books, and more will be available for purchase at most events.
