Hi, I'm Evan.
I am passionate about support. My open mind and open heart speak volumes during whichever stage of pregnancy you are in. If you just took your pregnancy test and are thinking about options, I'm there. If you’re in your 2nd trimester, I've got you. If you are a single mother trying to figure out details, I'd love to help. If you’re 38 weeks and you and your partner just decided you need an extra set of hands, don’t worry! Through excitement, loss, love, BIRTH and everything in between, I would be honored to support you.
How Did I Get Here?
In the winter of 2016, I took a DONA Birth Doula trainings and haven't looked back. I am now a certified birth doula CD(DONA) and a DONA trained postpartum doula at Homegrown Babies
I became passionate about advocacy & support surroundings the health and wellbeing of women and gender-non conforming folks as an OurVOICE advocate and later as an abortion doula through the Open Umbrella Collective. Volunteering as an emotional support to people that I just met allowed a space for me to learn how to create instant, empathic connection with someone during a life-changing event.
When I began birth doula work, it felt so right. It's a challenge, it's beautiful, it's sacred, it's intense, and everything in between. With a deep desire to learn and use the most up to date information, along with the instinct and drive to create the most loving and comfortable space possible- my segue from trauma support to birth work felt seamless and like a natural step in life.
I feels so fortunate to have found my path!
Currently taking clients in Asheville and the surrounding areas.
