Sheila has been married for 26 years and has 2 daughters. She has always been a birth junkie, enjoying all things related to birth. Her first encounter with supporting someone in labor came when she was blessed to be the doula for a friend that desired hospital birth but with no pain medication. From the moment of seeing that child born, she was fascinated and wanted to learn more. She began as a doula but quickly transitioned into student midwife training. She trained under 3 different Midwives and developed her own personal style of care. She cultivates a supportive community at the Birth Center, where families gather for pregnancy, birth, postpartum and beyond.
