Newborn Care Specialist and Labor Doula
Practice Member serving Loudoun County, Winchester, the Eastern Panhandle of WV and Hagerstown Maryland.
Summer is a Newborn Care Specialist and Certified Labor Doula through Birth Boot Camp. Summer learned about Doulas after personally experiencing a difficult birth and learning of the amazing support Doulas offer. After the birth of her daughter, Autumn, she knew that being a Doula was her calling. She has loved every minute of it and could not ask for a better career supporting families. Each birth she has been a part of and each new family she has supported has been a special adventure and has not only helped her grow as a professional, but as a person.
Summer is always willing to provide you the support and comfort you need with however and wherever you choose to birth or whatever your parenting philosophy is. She is always willing to help you with the transition of your new baby to your home day or night. Every birth, and every newborn is unique and one of her skills is individualizing her care to meet your needs. Whether your parenting journey goes according to plan or has twists and turns. Summer’s clients have said that she makes them feel confident and prepared no matter what their goals are.
Summer has been a Nanny to infants and older children for many years. She is a past CNA and has worked in a daycare facility, in-home care, worked with the mentally ill as well as those battling addiction. She enjoys helping new families on their transition to parenthood and hopes to have the opportunity to support your family.
In her spare time Summer loves to go biking, kayaking, and hiking with her husband Alex. She also enjoys spending time with her two dogs Roxie, and Harvey.
