I would love to journey with other parents to be as they navigate through the birthing process. I've been told my style and personality is, mother-like comforting with a strong sense of advocacy for all individuals. I know when to give the extra push when the moments seem unending, all while creating the most positive atmosphere I can. Every birth is different, and every birthing individual is as well, my honor for you, is to help the end goal be the same by providing the best care possible. I believe in a whole family approach, I never want you to feel alone with me at your side. I believe in realistic expectations, I want to help you be optimistic about your practical range of possibilities. I believe this can be accomplished by achieving realistic expectations.

Care philosophy

I believe every woman deserves to have the birth she envisioned. I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula, who firmly believes in listening to what your body is telling you; no one knows your body like you.

    Paulette was my postpartum doula, without her help I do not how I would have survived as a first time mom. Having her helping feed my baby and rocking him to sleep so I could get rest, gave me peace of mind and allowed me to relax and get rest to be the best me for my baby. Paulette reminded me daily to take care of me too and helped me with a lot while I recovered from my C-Section.

    I recently had the pleasure of working with a fellow doula and can confidently say that her services were excellent. She was knowledgeable, experienced, and incredibly supportive. She was able to answer her clients questions and provide great advice that was tailored to each individual question. Her professionalism and calming demeanor made me and my peers feel at ease throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a doula.
