I am certified through DONA (Doulas of North America). In addition to being trained as a Hypnobabies Hypno-Doula, I have attended classes on Spinning Babies techniques to get your baby in the optimal position for birth, the use of essential oils for birth, and working with survivors of sexual abuse. I breastfed my own children and have helped many clients with breastfeeding issues. I am a seasoned baby wearer as well and teach clients how to use various baby carriers. I have experience with twin moms, VBAC moms, and LGBTQ couples
I love the Hypnobabies program and love helping couples to have a joyous birthing time using this method. I live in Altadena, California with my husband and two children. Around the time of my daughter’s birth, I became a bit of a birth junkie. I developed a passion to empower couples in birth and knew I wanted to do something in that field, since it’s a great thing when one’s passion and career is one in the same. I then had the opportunity to attend a friend’s birth as a doula and I was hooked. I gave birth to my daughter in a hospital and to my son at home with midwives. Both were wonderful – yet very different birth experiences. As a doula, I feel privileged to join couples in that life-changing moment when their new child enters the world.
