Hi! I'm Bridgette.
I've been a Massage Therapist since 2006, a Mother and doula since 2011, Hypnobirthing Certified Infant Massage Instructor (2013), Reiki Master (2014), Certified Rebozo Instructor (2014), Dad Certified through Joe Valley in 2014, and a Certified Hypnotist (2018). I have completed classes for Auriculotherapy (Ear Seeds Practitioner) and am enrolled in additional, advanced Hypnosis classes. My goal is to encourage people to be their best, by realizing their full potential in the most natural and healthy manner possible.
As a birth doula and Mother, I believe in the philosophy that a person's confidence in their ability to give birth, and care for their baby, are enhanced or diminished by every caregiver and the environment, in which they give birth. It is a normal, natural, and healthy process which can safely take place in the home, birth center or hospital. Birthing individuals, and babies have an inherent wisdom, necessary for birth. Babies are sensitive and aware human beings, even in the womb, and should be acknowledged and treated as such. I strongly support fully informed consent and a person's right to choose. A doula's support is appropriate and invaluable for the person seeking a medicated, unmedicated or cesarean delivery. As your birth doula, I will provide continuous emotional support, physical comfort and assistance in obtaining information to make informed decisions before, during and just after childbirth to you and your birthing partners.
From my experience, I have learned that a person's recollection of their child's birth leaves an impression on their heart, and a lasting impact on their very soul. For this reason, I offer my mind, my heart, my energy, and my hands for the well-being of the birthing person and their children. It is my hope that, - no matter the circumstances - each person and their family will look back on this birth experience and see their own moments of strength, courage and joy.
