It is always an honor to be invited to the sacred space where you choose to birth -- hospital, birth center, or home...

I respect that honor by providing you and your partner(s) continuous support throughout your pregnancy and birth to help you create a satisfying birth experience.   

"Why do I need a doula when I have a midwife/OB/nurses I love?"

I love that you already have a birth team you’re excited about!  The more people supporting you that you trust the better.  Your doctors/midwives/nurses are there to watch out for both you and for baby… as well as the other families laboring on that day.  If it’s not a particularly busy day for babies (no full moon or big storm), you may have extra support on baby’s birthday, but as a doula I am there only for you before, during, and after birth.  

I will be there to physically and emotionally support you as you determine what your priorities are for birth; share relevant information, activities, and referrals to other professionals when needed to support your birthing goals; and provide comfort measures, including massage, counter pressure, guided visualization, positions and movement, breathing techniques, hot and cold packs, focus points, verbal encouragement, and other logistical support throughout labor.

Research found that women with continuous support during labor and childbirth were more likely to

  • have a spontaneous vaginal birth (give birth without a vacuum, forceps or cesarean surgery),

  • have a slightly shorter labor,

  • have babies that were less likely to have low five-minute Apgar Scores (a health assessment of newborns performed at one and five minutes after birth), and

  • be happier with their childbirth experience overall.  

Birth is too precious… too special… too sacred to feel anything less than respected, heard, supported, and empowered. I would be honored to join you on this amazing journey.

Prenatal Fitness + Birth Doula Package

Are you physically prepared for your ideal birth?  Are you looking for extra support throughout your pregnancy to get and stay in shape so you are ready for labor, delivery, and the fourth trimester?  Do you need someone who will support you and your birth partner(s) on baby’s birthday?

The Prenatal Fitness + Birth Doula package is the perfect way to get and stay in shape for pregnancy, labor, delivery, and recovery while also building a relationship with me so it feels like a friend instead of just another professional is with you in labor.  

Package Includes

  • TWO personal/small group training or yoga sessions per week or 8 per month

  • ONE prenatal doula check-in with you and your birth partner(s)

  • Optional visit to meet your medical provider or any friends/family you plan to have present at the birth

  • Unlimited availability through text/email throughout your pregnancy (and beyond!)

  • On-call availability between 38 and 42 weeks

  • ONE postpartum visit after birth


Birth + Postpartum Doula Package

Many parents create Birth Plans when determining what they want their birth experiences to look like, but not many think about what they want after Baby is born.

Once you bring Baby home you may be surprised to realize you can’t do things as well as you could before the birth. Resting, showering, otherwise caring for yourself, cooking, cleaning, even just eating can sometimes fall to the wayside. But having support during this transition can speed your postpartum recovery and help you easily adjust to this new life by giving you confidence and competence in bonding with and caring for your baby.

Postpartum doulas teach you about your newborn’s needs and abilities, feeding, sleep, and cues… all from the comfort of your home! They can also help with light household chores and meal preparations. Basically, whatever you need to help you settle in to your new role as parents.
