I am a Certified Doula, practicing in Southern Oregon. For the past decade, I have spent much of my time nurturing, educating, and supporting families, both professionally and at a grassroots level. I balance this out with time devoted to caring for myself and my family, raising four children with my partner and exploring the world around us.
I believe families can be satisfied and empowered when making informed choices before, during, and after the birth of their baby.
I believe this can come from hiring a team of professionals who will give their undivided time, attention, and respect.
As a member of your team, I will ask for, listen to, and learn about what you and your family desire and need, and what the BEST care for YOU looks and feels like.
I will be a continuous, calm presence when you need me, and I will ALWAYS encourage you to ask for the answers you need when making informed decisions.
Informed consent the foundation of my practice, because we all have the right to have our voice heard.
As YOUR doula, I will honor, nurture, and support you and your family before, during, and after the birth of your baby.
Currently certified as a Labor and Postpartum Doula through DONA International. I also provide families with Antepartum Support, and I am always in the process of continuing my education, with a special focus on how to better support families experiencing Perinatal Mood Disorders.
I LOVE supporting families as the story of THEIR pregnancy, labor, birth, and growing family unfolds. I encourage families to seek out the care they need and desire, and recognize that THEY are the true authority of their lives and choices. I calmly support all births, and compassionately hold space through all transitions during the childbearing year. Please be in touch to find out more about what my special brand of Doula care looks and feels like!
