My birth practice is centered on the belief that we are all happier and healthier when we are encouraged to trust ourselves and our bodies to carry us through the world and, in the case of birth, to bring new life into the world. It is the ability to provide encouragement and support to those undertaking the ancient and transformative journey of pregnancy and birth that makes this job so amazing to me.

How I show up as a doula:

I offer non-judgmental care that empowers and comforts
I hold space for the range of emotional experiences of labor and birth
I provide physical, emotional, informational, and spiritual support
I welcome people of all genders and family constellations
I am infant, child, and adult CPR and first aid certified
I offer a non-culturally appropriative approach to birth work and am culturally sensitive
I advocate for my clients to experience the best possible outcome, whether in a hospital, at a birthing center, or at home
I understand trauma’s effects on the body and mind
I bring a background in mental health care for navigating anxiety, fear, and other challenging emotional landscapes

My birth package includes:

A free, no-obligation consultation
Two prenatal visits
Resource & information sharing
Support with crafting a birth plan
Availability throughout your pregnancy
On-call 24/7 support starting at week 37
Continuous support during labor and the immediate postpartum period
Assistance with breastfeeding/latching

I am also happy to connect you with a range of services that exist in the birth community, from placenta encapsulation to lactation consultants
