About me

My Philosophy
My Story

While pregnant with my identical twin boys in 2004, my fascination with pregnancy, birth and newborns grew. After becoming a mother and living through the trials and challenges during this new and exciting time, I knew I needed to support other mothers and families on their unique journey. I started training as a birth doula after my boys' second birthday in 2006, as a postpartum doula later that same year and was trained and mentored as a doula trainer for Childbirth International in 2015.  I am so lucky and feel incredibly privileged to be able to support growing families. 

My philosophy is to: support and promote the client+ baby bond, educate my clients with evidence based research and resources, provide a nurturing space so my clients can feel confident and freely express themselves, encourage my clients to enjoy their own unique postpartum journey and to share my experience and knowledge as a birth doula, postpartum doula, advanced newborn care specialist, Happiest Baby on the Block educator and lactation educator counselor.

As a professional postpartum doula I have experience with:

  • Singletons, Twins and Triplets

  • Parents with diagnosed postpartum mood disorders

  • Mothers with post labor complications

  • Newborns with Colic

  • Newborns with Reflux/GERD

  • Premature newborns

  • Newborns who have been diagnosed as failure to thrive 

  • Newborns who have had major surgery 

  • In home bilirubin light therapy

  • Apnea monitors 

  • Single Parents

  • Adoptive families

  • LGBTQ families

  • Newborns with glucose issues
