Supporting Families through
Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum
"Birth matters. It matters because it is the way we all begin our lives outside of our source, our mother's bodies. It's the means through which we enter and feel our first impression of the wider world. For each mother, it is an event that shakes and shapes her innermost core. Women's perceptions about their bodies and their babies' capabilities will be deeply influenced by the care they receive around the time of birth." - Ina May Gaskin
My journey into this work began with the birth of my son, River. I trained with Debra Pascali-Bonaro as a doula and I knew that I found my life’s calling, supporting families during the sacred time of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I believe that this should be the most empowering experience of a woman’s life. I am here to protect, nurture and educate with a deep understanding of the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a laboring woman.
At my midwifery school, Birth Institute, I studied herbs, traditional Chinese medicine and homeopathy in the childbearing year. This sacred science carries over to my doula work. I have attended Spinning Babies workshops and will be finishing up my midwifery schooling at Mercy In Action. Check out my organic pregnancy teas and sitz baths. I also am a reiki master.
I attend homebirths, hospital births, planned c-sections and unassisted births. I am here to support your ideal birth.
Love & Light
