I am a Lamaze certified Childbirth Educator and a birth doula. I have been attending births in a doula role since 2014 and been an educator since 2018. I am committed to increasing education and knowledge about birth into the hands of expectant parents who can most benefit from it and put it to use! I believe birth is fundamentally a natural, healthy, physiological process. I believe that birth works best when undisturbed the majority of the time. I do acknowledge that at times the use of judicious intervention is necessary, beneficial, and increases the safety of mother and baby.

I provide birth doula services. I will meet two times prenatally to learn what is important to you about your birth and once postpartum. These meetings take place in your home. I am on call for you during your due "month" 37 to 42 weeks and will join you at your place of birth to continuously support you. I teach private and group childbirth education classes based on the Lamaze Six Healthy Birth practices. These emphasize evidence based information and minimal interventions for a safe and healthy birth.
