Tricia’s passion for birth was noticeable from the young age of 15, when she attended her first birth. This experience ignited an excitement in Tricia that she was unaware of. Since that time, she has felt a strong pull towards pregnant women and birth. Over the years she has had the privilege to attend many births, including 2 internationally. To develop and nurture relationships, Tricia enjoys the time she has with her clients and families prior to, during, and after birth.
Tricia provides birth doula services, childbirth education, massage therapy, and infant massage education in the Hampton Roads and Richmond area.
