Supporting families in the South Bay and surrounding areas 


     I am DONA trained as a birth doula and ICEA trained as a Professional Childbirth Educator. In addition to my experiences birthing and breastfeeding my three children, I have attended several educational workshops and am knowledgeable and experienced in Hypnobirthing, Lamaze, Bradley, Leboyer, breastfeeding and more. I continue to read and attend classes and workshops to further my knowledge in all areas of childbirth and breastfeeding support. I truly enjoy my work and feel very fortunate to be able to support and share in such amazing life moments.   
As you can see in the photo below I am the proud mother of three babies. I gave birth once in a birth center and twice in a hospital. They were beautiful unmedicated births with little to no medical interventions. Since the birth of my daughter more than 19 years ago I have felt a strong connection with and passion for natural childbirth and breastfeeding. Now that my children are older I am actively working in this wonderful world of childbirth education and pregnancy and birthing support as a Doula.  

Our bodies are amazing! For me personally, giving birth was how I really learned just how amazing they are! The experience transformed my understanding of the strength and power they have. That has been a gift for me in many ways.
I believe in our bodies ability to birth babies. I believe in natural childbirth and breastfeeding. I also believe that there is not just one right way to have a baby. Like we are, each pregnancy and birth is different. I feel it is important to understand your goals and what feels right to you. Your personal birthing style and goals are my focus. ​

My personal goal is to help you and your partner to feel prepared, informed, supported and confident going into labor and throughout the birth of your child.
