She is a writer at heart and has been writing since she was very young. If you follow her on Instagram (her favorite social media platform), you’ll come across passionately written posts about positive experiences she’s had working alongside of doulas, midwives and other birth workers, maternal mental health pieces, fun reels about on-call life and being a birth photographer, as well as recommendations on how to pick your birth team and prepare for a positive birthing experience. In her free time she is a Netflix fan, she does in face enjoy long walks and deep conversations about life and feelings.
