What do I offer?

Values & Philosophy


Expect quick responses. I welcome feedback.

I Keep Promises

I don't promise a risk-free birth. No one can. I do promise the experience will be transformational. 


I want to know you! I want you to feel comfortable with me. I center LGBTQ+ families in my work.

It's Your Birth

My goal: you are satisfied with your birth.


My former teacher shows. 

Continuous Learning

I did 87 hours of continuing education last year. I'm certified by multiple organizations. I know lots about birth so you don't have to. 

What does a typical doula package include?
