Pregnancy and childbirth are transformative. As a birth companion, I create a calm, safe space for you — physically, emotionally, and spiritually — during this rite of passage.

What is a doula?

A doula accompanies — or emotionally “holds” — clients throughout the birthing process to assist them in having a more rewarding birth experience. As a doula, I provide emotional support, physical comfort, and (if requested) spiritual support.

I provide information so that parents can make informed decisions when questions inevitably arise during the birth. And I provide reassurance and perspective to partners, encourage thoughtful discussion on labor progression, and use massage, positioning, and other approaches to encourage relaxation.

Please feel free to contact me. It would be a pleasure to talk with you about how I can assist your birth.

Clients

I welcome all clients, including LGBT families, teens, and single parents. For clients who want to explore the spiritual aspect of pregnancy and birth, I can offer support regardless of the particular religious/spiritual background, including non-mainstream beliefs. I feel that pregnancy and childbirth connect us all, throughout time, in a sacred way that transcends any single belief system.
