About me

As a Full Spectrum Doula, Birthing Rights Advocacy & Trauma Prevention Specialist, Whole-Child/Regulated Parenting Coach, and Mother of three, serving families of Santa Cruz County, it is my firm belief that a person has the innate ability to bring their baby into the world and rock their own transformation into Motherhood/Parenthood, provided they are confident, informed, and encouraged. My role in a family's journey to parenthood is to help instill and bolster that confidence, provide the information, and fully support the decisions made through the efforts of inclusive, non-biased, trauma-informed care. No matter how a family comes together - be it through adoption, surrogacy, long-planned or unexpected pregnancy, my goal is to support your experience in a judgement-free, open hearted way. THIS is how we become empowered - THIS is how families are born.

Service introduction

Having a Doula support you during your birth has shown to reduce the risk of unnecessary intervention - including Cesarean birth - and increase overall satisfaction of the labor experience. It's my pleasure, as a Doula, to provide continuous physical, emotional, educational support and comfort and advocacy for the entirety of your birthing and postpartum experience.
