Ursula is a senior birth worker having personally worked over 3,500 couples since 1999. She is passionate about educating, encouraging, and supporting women and their families throughout their pregnancy, birth, and recovery so that they can have quality outcomes and experiences. She works closely with the partner so that the laboring person is surrounded by people they trust.
Through education, she presents opportunities to have a better birth experience by addressing your concerns and fears. She will guide you through making educated choices based on evidence-based medicine in order to avoid unnecessary complications and their consequential repercussions as well as your desires and preferences. Therefore she can be fluid and at the moment, adapting to the ever-changing needs of the mother and her partner in labor. She is an effective communicator and can help facilitate communication with your provider and team no matter how unique your situation may be. Plus as an expert problem solver, she can work with the whole team to co-create an empowered birth experience.
As a Full Spectrum Doula, Ursula attends (in person and virtually) all types of births including scheduled cesareans, miscarriages, TFMR, and stillbirths.
Ursula entered the field with the birth of her own children. It was the support that she received that was essential to her growth as a new mother. Her births inspired her to be committed and present for other women and their families for over twenty years. As a doula and midwife assistant, she will honor your birth, your choices, and your journey while working with you and your partner as a guide so that you can have the Birth You Desire®.
She is also the CEO of Birth You Desire. She mentors and supports each of our team members so that all clients can receive the benefits of her knowledge if needed.
