My role as your doula is to provide continuous support in a hospital, birth center, or homebirth setting, helping you have an empowering birth experience. I offer nurturing, non-judgmental doula care, prenatal to postpartum. This is your birth and your baby, and I will support whatever kind of birth you seek.
I believe that the birthing body is deeply wise and receives clues about how to help baby emerge into the world. By bringing a grounding presence and a familiar face to your birth, I hope to offer you a sense of safety that helps you to listen for your body's knowing. I would be honored to support you in this extraordinary moment of your life.
