Welcome to Light My Path Maternity Services! My name is Elizabeth and I am a Certified Childbirth Educator, Labor Doula and lover of all things birth and babies. I’m so glad you stopped by!

 

My doula journey began a few years ago when I heard my friend use the word “doula” for the first time.  I asked her what a doula was and she wasn’t sure exactly, but knew it had to do with birth. Intrigued, I went home and googled it. At that time in my life, I was at a crossroads, wondering what to do with my life, and considering several options.  As I read about labor doulas and what they do, the most incredible feeling washed over me, and I knew, right then and there, that I had discovered my calling. I had goosebumps all over and tears in my eyes as I looked up and said aloud, “Yes! This is what I want to do; to help women and their families through one of the most intimate, beautiful times in their lives! What an incredible privilege.” And just like that, my doula journey began!

 

I am passionate about serving families and empowering women and their partners to make informed decisions about their birthing choices. As a labor doula certifying with CAPPA, I abide by their code of conduct and scope of practice. Here’s a quick look at what I do:

  • I provide loving, non-judgmental support throughout pregnancy, childbirth and early postpartum.

  • I encourage good communication between you and your birth team.

  • I provide you with evidence-based information so that you can make informed choices.

It is important to note what I do not do:

  • I do not make decisions for you or speak on your behalf to medical staff.

  • I do not do medical procedures or clinical exams.

  • I do not replace your partner. Read about dads and doulas here.

 

I look forward to meeting you! Happy Birthing!
