Doula Services

photoSince 2000, I have been passionate about empowering women and helping them to have a birth experience they take on as their own. Birth is very powerful and holds the possibility of transforming women and their spouses/partners. It is important to educate yourself on your OPTIONS for labor and birth, starting with where to birth and with what caregiver.

Assuming it is a normal, healthy pregnancy, I am a true believer that 90% of the time, birth works on it’s own merit and the less we do to disturb the process, the better the outcome for mother, baby and family.


That being said, I help ALL WOMEN. Women who want to have natural childbirth, women who want to go as long as they can before getting pain medication, women who are striving for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean section), women who need a surgical birth due to medical or emotional circumstances but want it to be a sacred event nonetheless, women who birth in hospitals, women who birth in birth centers, and women who birth in the privacy and comfort of their own home.

In addition to birth work, I offer services out of Pregnancy Sanctuary including:

Pregnant Mama Circles (Sacred Pregnancy)

4-hour Private Pampering Session (including bellycasting, henna art, pregnancy photo shoot, and more!)

Ceremonies for mother-to-be (Mother Blessings or Blessingways)

I hope you’ll contact me so that we can begin to get to know each other and see if it’s a fit for us to work together.
