I have been proud to serve as a doula since 2018. I came to this work after bringing my oldest child earthside and experiencing firsthand the importance of support, informed consent, empowerment, advocacy, and confidence during pregnancy, childbirth, and new parenthood. Through my own training and education as well as the stories of friends, clients, and other birth workers, I have witnessed the transformative power of a doula for both the birthing person and partner in the birth space and beyond. Holding this sacred space for you is truly one of my greatest responsibilities and deepest joys, and I would be honored to join you on your journey.

I am trained as a professional birth and postpartum doula through CAPPA (Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association). I am passionate about providing parents and families with unconditional support, evidence-based information, and confident self-advocacy – and above all helping you feel empowered, prepared, relaxed, and ready for whatever your journey holds. As your doula, I have no agenda other than to support YOU in your own individual desires and wishes…my ethos is that the things that are important to you are the things that are important to me.

Outside of my birth work, I am a mother to three beautiful children; one born in the hospital and two at home (fun fact: the video of the birth of my son went viral on Motherly due to a feature on pandemic home births…over 2 million people have watched me push a baby out!). On any given day you might find me wearing various dress-up items, teaching myself how to garden, singing the entire Brandi Carlile discography from memory, or compulsively organizing something…and sometimes all of the above! I’m also an avid amateur baker and will 100% bring treats to your prenatal and postpartum appointments 🙂
