The day I gave birth to my first baby the world became beautiful – my life went from black and white to Technicolor. Today when I work with clients, I believe it is my duty to help them discover the magnificence of their own birth process every step of the way.

As a DONA trained Birth and Postpartum Doula, I have facilitated individualized births in homes, birth centers and hospitals throughout San Francisco and the East Bay. I am equally at home, and can help you feel at home, in any of these settings. My clients will attest that I am calm, empathetic, supportive and highly skilled. I take great pride in instilling confidence in parents, and it is my joy to do so.

I have raised three children. I know the nuances of pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. I have spent time in motherhood’s trenches, and what I have learned enriches my professional doula training. I am, therefore, doubly qualified to educate and empower women in their own journey into motherhood.

My doula practice also benefits from the comprehensive knowledge I gained as an administrator in the postpartum unit at Berkeley’s Alta Bates Hospital. My experience as a certified massage therapist also strengthens my practice. In addition, I’m committed to creating nutritious meals for my family, and I enjoy helping other parents do the same.

As a DONA trained postpartum Doula I can help guide parents as they adjust to having a new baby. I bring warm, compassionate and practical care that can allow parents to revitalize themselves. Ultimately, I hope to work myself out of a job by helping parents feel comfortable and confident in their new role! I work both day and night shifts.
