About Me

After the birth of my second child, it became clear to me my life’s work would be supporting women and their families throughout the miracle of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.  I had long reflected on the presence of a doula during my first birth and immediate postpartum and knew how much she affected my feeling of a positive overall experience.

It is my belief that if all women had access to solid emotional and physical support during the process of birth and postpartum, that the entire experience could be an empowering, healthy, more satisfying event for the entire family. All parents have the right to be well educated about their choices, and should take the initiative to learn all that they can about the wonderful experience of birth.

My partner and I have three children, two sons and a daughter.  We live outside of Penfield, NY after spending the last 8 years in northern California.

My other passions include growing food with and for my family, travel, music, nature and baby wearing.  I am also passionate about community, supporting other women and social justice.  I look forward to meeting you!
