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, I walk alongside you through Childbirth Education, Birth Doula services. I offer collaborative Childbirth Education classes that are Beginnings Birth Center approved. With me as your Birth Doula, you will feel safe, empowered, and satisfied in your birth experience!
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!
