My Approach

I am a DONA certified birth doula assisting expectant parents in Marin and Sonoma counties who choose to birth at home, hospital or birth center.

I believe that within us lies a deep reserve of strength and intuition that birth can unlock. The powerful experience of childbirth equips us for the adventure and effort of nurturing and raising children. My goal in supporting my clients is to prepare you with evidence-based information and confidence to help you tap into that inner reserve, lifting you up through birth and beyond.


It would be my joy to support you!


My Services

Trust and connection are integral to the doula-client relationship. We will work together to craft a support plan that promotes your vision for birth and builds confidence.

Prenatal Visits

Together we will explore your unique needs and desires for birth. I offer my clients two in-home prenatal visits, as well as phone and email support.

Labor Support

On your baby's birth day, I will provide continuous labor support to help you achieve a satisfying and joyful birth experience.


After your baby's birth, I provide one postpartum home visit to review the birth and support a smooth transition for your growing family.

Kind Words

"If you bring all of your self—your emotions, your intellect, your body, and your spirit—to your baby's birth,
you will be rewarded."

Cynthia Gabriel, Natural Hospital Birth
