After attending 220+ births over the last 11 years, I'm still so thrilled to be supporting women and their partners toward their most positive birth experiences. My doula style is gentle, non-judgemental, and hands-on. I'm told my presence is calming and reassuring.
I'm happy to share the knowledge I've acquired over the years about the birth process, what to expect at the hospital, coping techniques, and more. My favorite comfort measure is massage.
I team up with the partner in whatever way feels most appropriate to the couple, helping them stay involved, while enabling them to take breaks to eat and rest.
I set a tone of respect and collaboration when I meet my clients' doctors, nurses, and midwives.
I'm a founding member, and the meeting & speaker coordinator for the Doulas of the East Bay. I've been a member of the SF Doula Group since 2006.
At home, I am a mother of two school-aged boys. We have a 25 pound mutt, and enjoy any chance to make each other laugh.
Please visit my website for more information (and a bit about my name). Feel free to email me to view my contract, including services & fees. Calls are also welcome. If you decide to meet for an interview, we will find a good time for you and your partner.
