My mission and passion for this project is to bring education, resources and tools to my military moms across the globe, both spouses and soldiers. Pelvic floor and core health continue to be a very ignored area in women’s health and I want to change that!

“I am one of the Staff Nurses and I can’t thank the doulas enough for helping support our patients in their labors. I feel comfortable and confident with my patient’s pain when I can help them with medications and epidurals. When they decide to go natural, it’s a different story. I am always relieved when I see a doula walk through our doors and know that they are going to help support my patient in ways I am often too busy to help with! Thank you to those in the volunteer program, what a wonderful idea for those with little support in the San Diego area!” L & D Nurse
