Birth Doula


I am trained, certified, and regulated through DONA International. My passion is helping families find the strength and wisdom within themselves through their births.  I teach and guide partners prior to and during labor so that they can participate at their comfort level. This helps to make the birth experience a satisfying one for both parents.  I will unconditionally support whatever preparation method that  you choose and any options that you wish to utilize. 


In addition to my DONA certification I have attended additional training or received certifications in:

  • Rebozo Technique (Gena Kirby Method)

  • Breastfeeding Counselor Support (The Elizabeth Project)

  • Newborn Loss

  • Acupressure for Birth, Pregnancy, and Postpartum (ToLabor)

  • Maternal-Child Health Specialist (The JJ Way)

  • Cultural Competency (Mercy In Action)

  • When Survivors Give Birth (Penny Simpkin)

  • Placenta Encapsulation Specialist (PBI)

  • HypnoBirthing

  • HypnoMothering

  • Hypnotherapy (NATH)

  • Birth Photography (Birth Becomes Her)


I only schedule doula support for one family per month.  This allows me to give your family and your birth the attention that it deserves. If I am not available to support you I would be very happy to assist you with finding a doula that is available and has the specifications that you desire.


Fee: $1500


Doula support includes: Comprehensive Childbirth Education, 2 prenatal meetings lasting around 1 hour each for education and planning, labor support from the time that you request it until about 1-2 hours after birth, professional photography beginning immediately after baby's arrival, two postpartum visits, a back-up doula in the extremely unlikely event that I am not available to support your birth, acupressure treatments during our meetings if desired.
