Hi! I'm Monique and I love connecting with expectant and new parents on a personal level.
I know what it feels like to be overwhelmed with the thought of birth and motherhood! I know what it’s like to read cold information and still feel unprepared. I encourage and support you with compassion and wisdom because it is my passion to see confident moms and dads enjoying this season of life.
A little about me
I am a mother of 11 children with 30 years of experience with all things parenting. I will never forget taking my first childbirth class, or the very first contractions, or looking into the little glass bassinette with my new baby and having no idea what I was supposed to do with her! Over the years I endeavored to educate myself, and find genuine mentors and community in order to grow.
At Grace of Life Doula and Sleep Consulting, I walk alongside you through Childbirth Education, Birth Doula services and Sleep Consulting. I offer virtual in-your-own-home Childbirth Education that works flexibly with your schedule, and yet still has the personal connection of an instructor-led class. With me as your Birth Doula, you will feel safe, empowered, and satisfied in your birth experience. And I help exhausted moms and dads get more sleep with sleep plans that feel comfortable and continuous support that is non-judgmental.
Along the way I have met and worked with amazing people who poured into my life! I have experienced a Cesarean section, as well as homebirth VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section) births. Each birth was an incredible time of stretching and growth. 4 years ago I started a new chapter in my life when I got a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome with my son. This added a new dimension to our family’s life, and a new appreciation for what families need during a time like this. I believe in always growing, always learning, and always pouring into the lives of others. Come grow with me!
