Certifications & Specialities

Hi there! I am a birth and postpartum doula living in San Francisco and servicing the Bay Area. As a doula, my goal is to support families through the transformative journey of childbirth and provide physical, emotional, and informational support during pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period. I believe that every birth is unique and should be honored and respected. I support families in all births from unmedicated vaginal births, to VBAC, to planned cesarean birth using evidenced based care as well as holistic methods and ritual and ceremony. 

Growing up in a big family with eight sisters has taught me the importance of community and the power of women supporting one another. I have always been fascinated with the life experiences of women, and I am passionate about helping all birthing people navigate this pivotal moment in their lives. 

Growing up in Maine fostered my love of nature as I played in the forests and rivers as a child - and while I miss the abundance of lakes there I love calling San Francisco my home. In my free time I’ll be hiking on the beautiful trails all over the bay, in the ceramics studio working on a new creation or cozying up with a cup of herbal tea and a book. 

I feel birthwork is sacred and above all I want to empower you to communicate your needs and to actualize your vision of a healthy and positive birth experience. 

Let’s connect!
