Amanda’s mantra, “She believed she could, so she did.,” is what she lives by. Her passion lies in supporting and educating women through their pregnancy and birth. Her ultimate goal is to help women to birth without fear and to feel empowered by their birth choices. The day she gave birth to her son was the day she realized her true calling in life, a birth doula and childbirth educator. To say it frank, Amanda’s husband walked out on her when she was 38 weeks pregnant, and completely blindsided her with his bags pre-packed; leaving her with their townhouse, a new puppy and a baby on the way to figure it out on her own. Even though her entire world was turned upside down she still continued with her goal and plan to have a natural birth for her baby. She did not let anything stop her from reaching this goal, “she believed she could, so she did!”
She had a wonderful birth support team, her midwife mother and her doula sister, who supported her throughout labor and delivery and was able to create a calm and nurturing environment to bring her son into. Amanda’s goal is to serve and create that environment for future moms and allow them to feel fearless on their birth journey.
Amanda also had her share of breastfeeding obstacles, but was able to breastfeed her son successfully for 7 months. Her passion grew with breastfeeding as she saw the bond between her & her son, Gavin. She hopes to be an integral part in the prenatal and postpartum breastfeeding world to make an impact in education and supporting moms throughout the 4th trimester with their babies.
