I am a postpartum doula trained by Childbirth Professionals International. My passion for new motherhood and newborns began when I became a mother to my first baby in 2006 as an ex-pat American in Salvador, Brazil. I never imagined I would be so in love with the process of childbirth and the days of baby snuggling that followed. When my second child was born in 2009 in Berkeley, California, I knew I wanted to be involved with new motherhood as a career. My third birth in 2011 solidified my desire to help welcome and transition new babies into the world alongside their families.

In 2014, I started studying to get my BSN to become a labor and delivery and postpartum nurse. While working through the courses, I decided to take a pause due to personal reasons, with the intent to return to them. During that pause, I learned about the important work of doulas and decided that was a perfect fit for me. I love and appreciate the science that goes along with nursing, but the personal touch and love of being a birth partner and baby whisperer fits me more than anything.

I speak fluent Portuguese. I am very LGBTQ friendly. I will never judge any individual's personal circumstances, preferences, or wishes. I am excited to meet your new family!

amber's Postpartum Package

- Amy and zach t.

She was always on time, had great advice, and was so sweet that on her last day with us she left us a flower and
card for best wishes with our new family member. We always looked forward to “An Amber night” in our first weeks postpartum. She was great with our baby, and she offered great sleep advice. Thanks, Amber!

Amber was amazing! 

- Andrea a.

As second time parents and as someone who has a chronic illness, sleep and rest was a priority for our second one. Amber was very easy to talk to and put us at ease with her years of experience and made handing over a newborn for overnight care easier. Amber recognizes that every family is different with varying complexities and provided us a variety of strategies based on her experience. She has been a great addition to our family for the first 8 weeks of our daughters life and any family would be lucky to have her.

"She has been a great addition to our family"
