Being very uninformed at my first birth I was left feeling like it was something that just “happened” to me. I felt like the doctor delivered my baby rather than me giving birth to her. During my subsequent five pregnancies, I educated myself about the process and felt empowered to make choices for my births. After raising my family I felt called to birth work and have a passion for helping new parents navigate their journey.
I am a certified birth and postpartum doula through Childbirth International and currently work in partnership with Tina Lyon at Seasons of Birth. I am an Evidence-Based Birth® Instructor, offering private and group childbirth classes for expecting families. I am a certified Body Ready Method® pro, with training in Spinning Babies® and Hypnobabies®. I have been a volunteer doula at Sutter Davis for several years and currently serve as a lead mentor for the newer volunteers. I have gleaned so much wisdom from my years of experience and various trainings, but am still humbled by each unique and beautiful birth.
