I've been involved in childcare for the majority of my life and, as the daughter of a former OB nurse, have always been interested in pregnancy, birth, babies and motherhood. I became a doula to support parents and families in feeling confident and empowered about their birthing and parenting experiences, no matter what that means or looks like to them. I've happily supported many hospital births (including planned Cesarean births), birth center births, and home births.
I started attending births in July of 2012 and I became certified as a birth doula through DONA International in January of 2014. I recertified in January 2017. I have trained as a Certified Lactation Educator through CAPPA. I am a certified placenta specialist through APPA, the Association for Placenta Preparation Arts.
