Why hire a doula?

  • You deserve continuous support—informational, emotional, physical and spiritual—during your childbearing year

  • You deserve an advocate who will remind you of your birth preferences and ensure your rights are upheld

  • You deserve to be seen, respected, and celebrated in your unique birthing situation

  • You deserve clear communication with your staff to help you make informed choices.

  • You deserve continuous reassurance, perspective, suggestions for labor progress, help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques that nurses, OB's, and doctors simply don't have the capacity to provide

  • You deserve to be heard, validated, and applauded in your most vulnerable and intimate moments

You don't NEED a doula, but you certainly DESERVE one. I'm simply there to reflect your own power back at you. 

What sets me apart?

  • I am a certified yoga and meditation teacher that invites mind + body connection into all aspects of birth preparation

  • I understand mindset, breath, movement, and emotional readiness for improving birth satisfaction and outcomes

  • I consider sovereignty and bodily autonomy to be of paramount importance and help my clients find providers that feel the same

  • I am an inclusive and trauma-aware doula with an array of tools for navigating childbirth to meet you where you're at

  • I am committed to helping you find meaning in the journey no matter what ends up being the destination

  • I am a personal mentor who specializes in overcoming and preventing trauma, finding your voice, and claiming your power

  • I am the creator of the Bhava Birth course, a holistic and non-judgmental path for birth preparation that celebrates birth as a rite of passage

I understand the role of emotions and mindset in the birth and postpartum space.

Who is my ideal client?

I love working with birthers and families who:

  • are highly motivated and want to be actively engaged in the birth process

  • have strong preferences yet soft expectations for their birthing experience

  • are actively seeking educational opportunities in their birth preparation

  • value collaborative/multidisciplinary care between medical and holistic practices

  • are utilizing midwifery care or—if high-risk—are working with a mindfully chosen OB or Doctor

  • are in the first and second trimesters, as this gives us ample time to connect, schedule appointments, gain clarity, and build effective support plans.

If you feel like a good candidate, I warmly invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation. Spots are limited.
