I am a certified birth doula in Oakland serving the San Francisco Bay Area, and received my training through Natural Resources in San Francisco. I am also the mother of two young children. The day you meet your baby will become a memory you'll have for the rest of your life. It is my passion to support women and their parters in having the most positive birth experience possible. My job is to provide you with continuous informational, physical, and emotional support during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
