"Hey, it's me, Graycen!"

Scott (husband) and I

Heres a bit about me:

I love to meet new people and share stories over coffee or tea. I enjoy having company over for a homecooked meal. My husband and I love to bake delicious cookies for dessert.

I get so excited about games! Here are some of my favorites:
Yard game: KanJam
Board Game: Disney's Villainous
Card Game: Hand and Foot
Video Game: Super Mario Bros Wii

Adventures and exploration are where some of my most valued memories come from. Along with.. being silly (everyone deserves to enjoy being a little goofy sometimes).

All in all, building relationships has to be my favorite part of life. I am a people person but I do appreciate time to recharge. You will likely find me journaling, cuddling with a fuzzy blanket, drinking tea, and listening to music in the mornings or during recharge time.

why I'm a doula...

A birthing person remembers their birth stories in detail for their whole life. I want to be part of creating positive birth experiences. I feel that there has to be nothing more impactful than to help birthing people and their families to be informed, confident, and supported throughout this season. I want to create a safe space for the family to make positive memories. My passion continues to grow for all things birth the more I learn and experience.

my philosophy

Everyone should be well cared for and heard throughout their pregnancy and labor. Everyone deserves to know the power of their voice in their birthing space. Everyone has a right to informed decision making in pregnancy and birth. I believe that not all birthing people are treated equally in our society and there is an ongoing effort required to change that. Those who desire it, deserve to have a doula by their side during pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period.
