Doula, Certified Medical Assistant

Lynn’s career as a doula began in the medical field. In 1996 she became a Certified Medical Assistant and worked in Internal Medicine for 10 years, Nephrology for five years and three years in OB/GYN. She is also one of the original Birth You Desire doulas on our team.

Read Bio

During the course of her experiences she has excelled in developing her hands on approach with her patients. Her expertise and gentle spirit have always given patients the confidence to face challenges head on. While working with midwives, she was exposed to a new word when she was asked to document who the patient and her “doula” were. Not knowing what a doula was or did, she did some research, and she was intrigued.

As time passed in the OB/GYN office, patients began inviting Lynn to attend their births. Not as a part of the medical staff but as a calming supportive presence for woman-to-woman support. From the first birth she attended (in addition to the mother’s doula) she knew she had found her calling. Having given birth to a daughter and a son without labor support, she saw the great advantages of having a woman with the knowledge of both the labor process and an understanding of medical decisions that are made in labor.

She began her path to become a labor doula through DONA training. She has been a labor doula, guiding women into the journey of motherhood since 2012. She believes each of the 500+ births she has supported is unique and supports each mother in her personal birth choices.
