About Me

Hello and Welcome! My name is Carrie and I am currently working towards my doula certification through Birth Arts International. I am on a mission to serve women planning home births and hospital births at Bromenn Hospital in Normal, Illinois or OSF St. Joseph in Bloomington, Illinois.

I have a Social Work degree from Ball State University where I learned what it means to advocate and work for social change. I only realized where my efforts were supposed to be focused when I became pregnant myself. I loved being pregnant and the empowering feeling that birth can bring. However, I realized that this crazy world we birth in leaves room for improvement and that women can greatly benefit from the support of a doula, as I did. I love that I get to share something that I am so passionate about and that can make such a huge impact on a woman's life. Working together, we can make birth safe and fulfilling for both Mom and baby.

My goal is to help you realize your dreams for the childbirth experience that you want. I would be honored to join you in your journey to motherhood.
