I am a certified birth and postpartum doula. (DONA and DTI) as well as a certified lactation counselor (CLC) and a Lamaze-certified childbirth educator (LCCE). I am a Hypnobirthing certified doula. I have achieved the 200-hour level yoga certification as well as 85-hour pre and postnatal yoga teacher certification and am a Fit For Birth pre and postnatal corrective exercise specialist.

Originally from Sun Valley, Idaho, I have resided in NYC since 2002, working in the fashion industry. I am an avid yoga practitioner and teach pre and postnatal fitness and yoga.  I draw upon this experience often during my work as a doula. The mind/body connection is essential in life and becomes abundantly important in birth and beyond.

I became interested in birth work after hearing birth stories from friends. Several had traumatic birth experiences where they did not feel supported, listened to, or informed during the birth process. This didn’t sound right to me.  I started asking around for more birth stories. I heard some incredible stories of births that were attended by doulas. Like some of you, I had no idea what a doula was so I did some research. I learned about the status of birthing people globally and domestically, in particular among minorities. I also learned that having a non-biased, constant, and supportive person by your side could help reduce unfavorable birth outcomes and increase overall satisfaction with the birth experience.

I’m a mom to a little kid and reside in Manhattan with my family. Since becoming a parent myself I have become even more passionate about supporting families in their journeys.

I believe that birth is an amazing process and you deserve to have the best birth and postpartum possible. I support all types of births and families, recognizing that this is YOUR story, not mine. My goal is to help you experience a memorable birth-day and beyond!
