I am a birth doula and nutritional consultant with a passion for birth work. I completed my birth doula training through Natural Resources in San Francisco and have volunteered as a birth & postpartum doula at San Francisco General Hospital since 2015. I bring to my practice a Masters degree in Health Education with a focus on holistic nutrition and maternal health. I have extensive knowledge in regards to nutritional approaches such as: gluten-free, dairy free, grain-free, paleo, vegetarian, and vegan.

I became a doula to help women and their partners/families. We doulas know that mamas who have this type of practical/emotional support & education have improved childbirth experiences, decreased medical interventions, greater infant bonding, and increased levels of maternal satisfaction. For this reason, I believe that EVERY women deserves to have a doula.

"A doula is someone who is there to support you regardless of what road you take. You tell me where you want to go, and I'll help you find a map" - Katie Fleming
