I am not currently taking any birth or postpartum doula clients. I am accepting clients for childbirth education, perinatal coaching and placenta encapsulation services only.
I am committed to helping families have (w)holistic birth experiences.
All too often, women experience traumatic births because they either do not have the necessary information or they do not have the support to help them navigate the process of birth and make informed decisions. This is true for their partners and support systems as well.
Hiring a doula can help you better identify your expectations and desires surrounding your pregnancy and birth experience and help you prepare a plan that supports your desired birth outcome. During the postpartum period, a doula can play a vital role in your physical and emotional recovery and provide information and tools to help you better care for yourself and your new baby.
As a doula, I educate families through birth and the postpartum period and help them explore ways to practice self love while they transition into parenthood. I provide tools and information on balancing life with parenthood. If you have older children, you may need support in knowing what to do with them as well.
I am a Lamaze Trained Childbirth Educator, Certified Lactation Counselor and NBDA Certified Placenta Practitioner as well as an NBDA Certified Doula Instructor.
I am trained as a Perinatal Community Health Worker and certified in Perinatal Family Support. I have helped many families organize their lives, identify their values and prioritize their relationships with their children. I bring this aspect to my work as a doula and childbirth educator.
Having a baby is a life changing experience and should be treated as sacred. My goal is to empower families to advocate for themselves and understand how to ask the appropriate questions to address their concerns.
I can help you navigate the unknown territories of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I can teach you how your body works in conjunction with birth as well as understand the normal physiology of labor. I will help you create a realistic postpartum plan that takes into account the needs of your family.

Placenta for Healing:
Many people of the world have known the secret power of the placenta as a medicinal
supplement. Among the Chinese and Vietnamese, it is a customary practice to prepare the
placenta for consumption by the mother. The placenta is thought to be rich in nutrients
that the mother needs to recover more readily from childbirth. In Italy, women have been
known to eat parts of the placenta to help with lactation. Hungarian women bite the
placenta to expedite the completion of labor. And knowledgeable midwives in this
country have their birth mothers take bites of raw placenta to help stop hemorrhaging,
due to its beneficial Oxytocin content.
There are a variety of potential benefits to placentophagy. For one, the placenta contains
vitamins and minerals that may help fight depression symptoms, such as vitamin B6. For
another, the placenta is considered rich in iron and protein, which would be useful to
women recovering from childbirth, and a particular benefit to vegetarian women.
Why do this? Mostly, placenta pills may help to:
• Increase general energy
• Allow a quicker return to health after birth
• Increase production of breast milk
• Decrease likelihood of baby blues and post natal depression
• Decrease likelihood of iron deficiency
• Decrease likelihood of insomnia or sleep disorders
