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. Choice is a powerful thing. I educate my clients about the birth process and support their choices, affirming their right 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. It’s important to me that these services are accessible to all birthing people who want to access doula support, not just those who can afford a “luxury” service.
In addition to 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 Institute (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. My aim is to help make this life transition - pregnancy, birth, the fourth trimester and beyond - just a little bit easier for you.
