I have been helping to improve birth experiences in NYC and Westchester County for over a decade. This is my philosophy: You don’t become a different person when you become pregnant, begin labor, enter your birthing space, or bring your baby home for the first time. You’re still you, having an intense and transformative life experience. As your doula, I take the time to learn who you are and what will help you and your family to feel comfortable, informed, prepared, and ready to engage with your birth, both in advance and through the ever-changing moments of the birth process. I am passionate, flexible, and comforting, but also grounded, no-nonsense, and strongly evidence-based.

I provide support for pregnant people across the spectrum of pregnancy. My birth doula services begin as early in pregnancy as you like, and focus on preparation so that you walk into the room feeling confident and ready to face whatever journey your labor takes. I also provide lactation support and home support in those critical first days at home. Placenta art and encapsulation also available!
