As a Full Spectrum doula with training in birth, postpartum care, abortion support, bereavement and infant loss, I offer the doula model of care and support for every aspect of a birthing person's reproductive experience and for every possible outcome. Choosing to birth in the ways that you want is a powerful thing in this world, where we are increasingly separated from our agency and choices. I educate my clients about the birth process and their choices. I support their empowerment to advocate for themselves during this time.
Helping new parents transition into parenthood in a confident, healthy, emotionally connected way is very much a form of activism for me. I am deeply committed to making sure my business is always growing more inclusive, accessible to all birthing people who want a doula and not just those who can choose a “luxury” service.
In addition to taking trainings with CAPPA, ProDoula, Stillbirthday, and the LA Doula Project, I have also studied massage therapy, polarity therapy, acupressure, Reiki, aromatherapy, flower essences, nutritional healing and other whole body/mind/spirit modalities at both Heartwood (Garberville, CA) and the Holistic Life Institute (Oakdale, CA).
I understand the pressures and conflicts that parenting can place on new families and I'm eager to offer you the flexible, reliable support you need and deserve during your childbearing year. My aim is to help make this life transition - pregnancy, birth, the fourth trimester and beyond - just a little bit easier for you.
