I’ve been attending births at home and at Alta Bates, Kaiser Oakland & Walnut Creek, and Marin General since 2009. I received my birth doula certification through CAPPA, and did my postpartum doula training with Cornerstone. I’ve taken extended education courses through Birthways, the Bay Area Doula Project, and East Bay Lactation Associates. I’m currently training as a Childbirth Education Facilitator with Cornerstone.
I’m super passionate about empowering pregnancy, birth, and parenting experiences. We all deserve to have knowledgable support during these transformative periods of our lives, and this support in turn can create a virtuous cycle of happy, confident parents and kids. Education, perspective, and a trusted community can help us weather the unexpected and find our way to the other side feeling connected and loved. We’re here to help and guide each other along the path to parenthood: I’m honored to be part of your journey.
