Certified and experienced in natural childbirth, Birth Doula Monica is the founder of Life Links, your connection to valuable resources and unwavering support—from pregnancy to birth and beyond.
Originally from Kansas, Monica's background as a traveling occupational therapist led her to the love of her life in Florida.
As Monica's children were born, (all out-of-hospital at birth centers), a dream of doing birth work also began to grow. Eventually she merged her passion for service and undeniable love of birth.
She professionally trained as a birth doula with DONA International and certified in 2021.
With great honor and joy, Monica empowers and nurtures expectant mothers and families in SW FL throughout the incredible, transformative event of childbirth.
A doula is a non-medical, professionally-trained member of a birth team who provides physical, emotional, informational and practical support before, during, and after childbirth. The purpose of a birth doula is to empower you and your family to achieve the experience you desire in the setting of your choice: home, hospital or birth center.
"Whenever and however you intend to give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and your spirit for the rest of your life.”
