doula

certified childbirth educator

placenta specialist

When invited to journey with someone through their pregnancy and birth, I become an ally, someone to walk beside them and to lean on when needed. I focus on education in evidence-based care, hands-on support, listening with compassion and an open heart, and treating families with dignity and love.
