About
My interest in becoming a doula began in 2000 with the doula assisted birth of my first daughter. The support, confidence and birthing "know-how" provided by my doula inspired me to help other women during childbirth.

I've been a DONA certified doula since 2001 and have attended a diversity of births (natural, medicated, induced, twins, VBAC, cesareans, and adoption) with all kinds of moms (single, married, teen, queer and mature). I'm a trained HypnoDoula able to support those choosing HypnoBirthing for their birth.

As well as serving private clients, I work with the Ilythia Project helping HIV positive moms give birth. I also speak Spanish and love to use it at births when there is a need.
