Certifications: Certified Labor Doula
Location: Beverly MA United States

As your birth doula, I will provide email/text support throughout your pregnancy, two prenatal visits, 24/7 access for the on-call period, attendance at your labor/birth and through the early ‘settling in’ period, and a postpartum visit to process your birth experience, share pictures (if requested), and provide breastfeeding support if desired. I am happy to share informational resources and practitioner recommendations with my clients. In addition to certifying as a labor doula with CAPPA, I have completed training in Spinning Babies movement and balancing techniques, Trauma Informed Perinatal Care, The Truth About VBAC for Professionals, and Breastfeeding for Birth Professionals. I am also a certified Body Ready Method Pro, and this intensive training in the biomechanics of physiological birth has broadened and deepened the support I am able to offer my clients. My fees reflect my training and experience, but I would love to provide birth support to anyone who desires it so am prepared to work with clients with a sliding scale fee according to their demonstrated financial constraints.

I frequently attend births at Beverly Hospital but also work at Mount Auburn, MGH, Salem, Beth Israel, Newton Wellesley, Emerson, and other Boston area hospitals. I loved working with the midwives at the North Shore Birth Center, and am actively working to help support the (re)opening of Birth Centers around the state. For those currently seeking to birth out of the hospital, I happily support midwife-attended home births and have had the wonderful experience of two home births myself.

I am a volunteer doula with the Connecting Young Moms program at Beverly Hospital, which provides support to under-supported and at-risk young mothers. I love to serve ALL types of individuals and families who desire support during their birthing experience.

I bring to this work my deep desire that each client I serve experiences their baby’s birth as the life-affirming and identity-transforming space of personal growth that it can and should be. To that end, I offer the informational, emotional, and physical support that all parents deserve – in their pregnancy journey, their labor and birth, and in the immediate postpartum period. I use my training in the biomechanics of physiological birth to assist my clients in preparing their bodies for an empowering birth experience, my many years of work as a research scholar and educator to help advocate and liaise for them in spaces that can be unfamiliar and overwhelming, and my own decades of mothering to support them in their transition into parenthood.
