Birth and Postpartum Services and Support

I am here to be your support and advocate as you prepare to bring beautiful new life earthside, and beyond.


My Story

I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things about humanity. 
My own birth and the births of many women around me led me down the path of becoming a Doula and Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner.

Women need to know that their birth is important and it matters! They need to have the support to make their birth vision a reality and have a positive birthing experience, no matter what turn their birthing takes.

As a Doula, I have the privilege to support and advocate for women and their partners and make these experiences positive and fulfilling. As a childbirth educator I have the privilege to teach families how to prepare their body AND mind for a calm, positive birth.


My Services

As a respected Doula, I pride myself in providing you and your partner with care, understanding, information and support throughout, during, and after the birthing process. Our initial meeting will help me tailor my packages to fit your needs, as every pregnancy is different. To schedule an initial consultation, or to learn more about my practice, please contact me.

Birthing Guidance

Informative and Compassionate

Get extra personal support throughout the entirety of your birthing journey. As a Doula, I promise to offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during, and after birth. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer anything needed.

Postpartum Support

Here for You

From our initial meeting all the way through your pregnancy and delivery, I take the time to get to know you, your concerns and your needs. Take advantage of the postpartum support that every family deserves. Meal prep, feeding assistance, settling support are just a few services you will get from this service.
