About me

I’m a Postpartum Doula and Certified Breastfeeding Specialist with thirteen years of infant-care experience and a passion for sharing my expertise with new parents. Shortly after becoming a mother in 2013, I realized I was called to support women during the early stages of motherhood. I began working in postpartum care in October of 2014 and have since trained with the Newborn Mother's Collective. My experience breastfeeding my own daughter and the years I have spent supporting breastfeeding women has led me to pursue IBCLC credentials. I have a heart for serving others and it brings me great joy to help mothers navigate this “rite of passage”. I believe that when a woman becomes a mother, she is forever changed and the new instincts she acquires are powerful.

Gentle Sleep Coaching (Virtual)
I encourage the use of “sleep shaping” techniques with my doula clients in the newborn phase. I do not offer formal sleep consulting earlier than the four-month mark. I have sleep-trained older babies, however, my preferred window for sleep coaching is when they are between 4-7 months. Package includes: •15-minute free discovery call to discuss your needs and see if I’m a fit for your family • 1 -hour zoom call to discuss your family’s daily routine, the various sleep methods available and decide the right approach for your family • Detailed sleep plan in PDF form, tailor-made for your baby • 10 days of text/email support to coach you through your family’s journey to healthy sleep • One final success call

Prenatal Lactation Class
Before baby arrives, you and your partner may want to get prepared for infant feeding. Scheduling a breastfeeding class in the comfort of your home is a wonderful start. My classes are 1 hour and include a breastfeeding packet full of useful information. We can discuss your breastfeeding goals and I can offer tips that will hopefully instill confidence as you enter into parenthood.
