I fell in love with the idea of becoming a postpartum doula, when retrospectively, I realized how much I personally could have benefitted from one after the birth of my daughter! As the term doula is gradually finding its way into our society’s vernacular, my mission is to educate new and expecting families as to how beneficial hiring help during the first few weeks and months following birth can be.
I completed my training and later certified with Doulas of North America (DONA) and subsequently became certified as a Lactation Counselor (CLC). I like to approach my work with patience, empathy and a sense of humor. I honor a non-judgmental approach to caring for and supporting each family based on their own individual needs.
When I am not supporting families and babies, I enjoy traveling, Pilates, cooking, shopping at farmer’s markets and attending live concerts, dance performances, and theater.
