Party of Five! Maverick Blue, born 8/24/17

Ali and Matt welcomed their newest little bundle, Maverick Blue, on Thursday. He's a little peanut weighing in at 7#1oz. Look at the joy on all of these faces! Big sister Scarlet and big brother Caliber are overjoyed. For numerous reasons, Ali transferred her care to Tampa General Hospital midway through her pregnancy, and I transferred from providing Doula Care to providing Distance Doula Care. This means that while I wasn't at their birth place while their baby was born, I was still able to spend time with them prenatally, teach them in a private setting, and they were able to consult with me prenatally and throughout early labor. One of my greatest joys is mentoring dads-to-be and watchin

Birth Announcement! Welcome Arielle Micháel Shevlin

Join me in welcoming Arielle Micháel, born July 11 at 7#14 oz! Proud parents Tasha and Tim couldn't be happier. What a gorgeous baby! Tasha and Tim found their way to Distance Doula Care early on in their pregnancy. They knew that DDC would be a good fit especially with Tim's background in Personal Training where he coaches and encourages daily (just the qualities needed in a supportive birth partner!). As a couple, they took their commitment to their birth preparation seriously and also laughed every step of the way (when I picture them both, their easy, lighthearted smiles come to mind). They took Birthing From Within class and learned ways to cope with the unexpected all while planning

Birth Announcement! Baby Theodore Roger

When I received a text around 6:30 that night, I never would have guess that baby boy would have arrived within 7 hours. They weren't even sure they were in active labor! I urged them to stay home a while, work on Spinning Babies positioning, and work through their pain-coping exercises they learned in class. But things moved along, and speedily! By 11:30 Nanette verbalized that she really was ready to head to her birth place. Yes! I wholeheartedly agreed! Welcome baby Theodore Roger Rowbeck, born July 31, 2017 at 1:54am. He's 7# 15oz of newborn love. Huge congratulations to mom and dad, Nanette and Karl. What a pleasure to have supported your journey through Distance Doula Care! Join me in
