Pregnancy, birth, and early parenting are times of great power and transformation.  My wish for you is that you have what you need to feel confident and competent in your new role.  I trust that, with nonjudgmental support, you will arrive at the decisions that are right for your body, your baby, and your family.

 

Holding space for a family to welcome a new baby is sacred work.  I value self-awareness and a commitment to personal growth in the doulas I train, mentor, and work with.  I support and promote self-care and healing among those whose work involves caring for new families.
