Serving East Bay, SF, Marin and Peninsula Area.
I’m with women before, during and after birth to support them to have a fulfilling, empowering experience.
Birth Doula Service
As a doula, I provide physical comfort, emotional support, and information throughout the birth process for mother, baby and family. I also offer help and advice on comfort measures such as breathing, relaxation, movement and positioning. I can/do use a birthing ball, massage, music, aromatherapy, visualization, breathing, and tips on positioning. I have been trained as a birth doula and have experience working with women during pregnancy and after birth. Drawing on my training and experience, I accompany women through labor to help ensure the safest, most satisfying experience possible.

She is with you to empower and encourage you, support your self care, offer information, and as a source of referrals to other specialists when they are necessary.
