I did my training in 2010 in Portland, OR. Since then I have been very lucky to work with some amazing, powerful, and strong families throughout their perinatal period. I have helped families in their homes, birth centers and at hospitals. I have assisted at unmedicated births, medicated births, C-sections, VBACs, silent births, and hypnobirths. My main priority is to support the birthing person and their partners, if involved, and the decisions they've made for their delivery. 

As your doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver or hospital. Throughout our relationship I will provide the following to the best of my ability:

  • Emotional support, prenatally, throughout labor, and in the early postpartum period.
  • Encouragement and support for laboring woman’s partner to participate at their comfort level.
  • An experienced and objective viewpoint.
  • Assistance in obtaining information in order to make informed decisions.
  • Massage and therapeutic touch to assist in tension reduction, keeping stress mild, and releasing connective tissue restrictions that could be impacting labor. 
  • Ideas for position changes to allow for comfort and ideal positioning of baby throughout labor and for delivery. 
  • To facilitate communication between the laboring woman (couple) and healthcare providers.
  • Suggestions and techniques to enhance labor and ease pain.
  • Breastfeeding support.
  • Postpartum Support
  • I do NOT provide medical advice
