I love pregnancy, birth & postpartum. It is an amazing time of deep love, learning and growth. I have had the honor of supporting families for over 14 years.
As a Certified, experienced Birth Doula, and yoga teacher, I help you understand the process, of pregnancy, birth and postpartum; the nitty-gritty details of what’s happening, what might happen, and how to navigate the every changing waters of motherhood!
But, my bigger role is to help you embrace your own unique experience … whatever it entails. Whether you love being pregnant, or you wish babies came via the stork. Your thoughts, feelings and beliefs matter. I provide information and support to make the process easier, more creative and more personally meaningful. Your needs, feelings and choices are valid – even if you aren’t sure what they are yet!
