Serving as a doula is Patti’s calling, and truly, it called her – quite literally at times. After attending her first birth, word spread so quickly that Patti’s phone wouldn’t stop ringing. Without looking back, Patti became a DONA-certified doula in 1998. She is committed to learning as much as possible about both the art and science of her work, and regularly attends medical conferences, trainings, and workshops.
Patti has attended more than 1,700 births and despite countless sleepless nights, attending births is still her favorite part of being a doula. She is so well known and respected by the medical community that she is often greeted by name when arriving to any hospital in the medical center of Houston.
Patti is a certified childbirth educator through ICEA and teaches one of the best condensed childbirth classes in Houston. All of her doula clients take her childbirth class and have excellent birth experiences, short labor and short pushing time.
Born and raised in Texas, Patti lives in Houston with her beloved Dachshunds, Pepper and Pixie. She has dedicated her life to helping women in the Houston area. She is proud to count the more than 1,700 “Patti’s babies” as her extended family and loves watching them grow up.
