I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in Pelvic Health, Certified Birth and Bereavement Doula, International Best Selling Author, Level 1 Naturopathic and Maternity Reiki Practitioner, and Yoga and Acupressure Student residing in Atlanta, GA. I have seamlessly incorporated my passion for childbirth with my unique set of skills to serve as Your Doula.
Competent Heart Perinatal Specialist, LLC was created as a legacy of transformation following my own experience with pregnancy, loss, and spiritual rebirth. I am dedicated to humbly serve as your loyal companion to educate, empower, and support you to use your voice, build community, and make informed choices during your childbearing seasons. By incorporating self-discovery, mindfulness, holistic modalities, Physical Therapy expertise, and evidence-based care you will be guided towards being an active participant, self-advocate, and creating the village of support you desire and deserve in order to actualize the Positive Birth experience your heart desires.
I currently provide in-person Pelvic Physical Therapy services in Atlanta, GA as well as Virtual Doula Services nationwide.
Frequently Asked Questions
For me, providing my services is not just a job, this is my mission, heart, soul, and legacy. Personal life experiences, skills, passions, etc have guided me on this path and I can confidently say I am living my OWN heart’s desires when working with my clients.
My overarching mission is for the uplifting of my community, culture, and collective. I am able to accomplish that with each personal interaction, one family at a time - as you rise, transform, and realize your own heart’s desires through childbearing and beyond
What makes you different from another Birth Professional/Doula?
Each Doula and Birth Professional is unique and brings their own special flare and perspective to their work.
I am a life-long learner. I listed the many certifications and interest that I currently have, although it looks like a lot, I am very intentional that my pursuits flow together in order to holistically support my clientele - body, mind, spirit, & energy.
I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in Pelvic Health and even more so focused on pregnancy and postpartum populations. There is a growing subsection of Physical Therapists that are Pelvic Health specialists AND provide Labor/Birth services. In my opinion, this is a perfect combination because SO many changes happen in the pelvic region, why not have an expert in the matter on your team and journeying alongside you?
Another one of my interests that hasn’t been listed above, yet sets me apart, is that I am a Human Design enthusiast. With just a few simple pieces of information regarding Your birth, we can gather powerful insights and the blueprint of how you are created to uniquely function in this life. If you’re anything like me, gaining this clarity will give you confidence and permission to fully live as your authentic Self. We will even take it a step further and take a peek into how to best parent the new life you are nurturing after they are born utilizing this newly gained insight.
Why would I choose virtual vs. in-person Doula support?
I’ll first start out by saying virtual is not "less than". Although my services are provided virtually through phone, text, email, video, etc I am incredibly intentional about providing a personal touch. This is an intimate time and experience for you and your growing family, so we will get to know each other as much as you feel comfortable sharing; I am pretty open and welcoming and will give you space to share as much as you wish.
Yes COVID is still a thing and many facilities are limiting the number of people in the Birth room. By choosing virtual Doula support, you are more than likely able to have your partner or chosen support person present. Most times this person is someone with whom you have a close relationship. By having them present for the Birth of your child, and they are the ones executing the physical, emotional, mental support; they are now an integral part of the Birth story and able to deepen your relationship and connection.
AND by the way, I am STILL providing valuable support and guidance DURING the labor and birth process too! I take time during our prenatal sessions to help guide your chosen support person to Be and feel confident, prepared with education, comfort measures, resources, hand placements, etc.
As I mentioned before, I’m not only here providing the Doula info, I am also dedicated to Your personal growth, expansion and helping you uncovering your desires and power and we still spend extensive time digging deep into these an other topics.
What else can you tell me about you?
I like to have fun, learn, and explore.
