Doula Agency Owner, FreeSpirit Birth Doulas & Lactation
21 years ago a midwife turned to me during a routine examine and inquired, "Are you looking for a job?" That midwife was Jill Alliman at Women's Wellness in Madisonville...and that was the beginning of the greatest, most satisfying career.
As the freestanding birth centers in East TN began to fold under pressures, I decided it was time the women in Knoxville had a one stop shop for all things fertility, pregnancy, birth, lactation and postpartum. Nearly fours years later, I've pulled together the talents of women in the Knoxville area to provide just those services- preconception planning, education, mentoring, labor and postpartum support, lactation and more to the women in Knoxville birthing our next generation. FreeSpirit Birth is not just our name - it's our philosophy as Knoxville's most comprehensive stop during your childbearing year.
