I work with families who have epidurals and scheduled cesareans or home births and water births - and everything in between. Regardless of your choices, I am confident in my ability to bring substantial support to your individual experience. Birth is truly extraordinary and I feel absolutely honored to be a part of each and every client's story.
I completed my DONA doula training in 2011. From there, I went on to volunteer for Clackamas County's Healthy Start/Healthy Families program at Willamette Falls Hospital in Oregon City. Since 2012, I've been a Moms Helping Moms mentor for the Catholic Charities adoption and pregnancy support program, working as a mentor and doula for single moms and teen moms.
