A doula is a trained professional who provides physical, emotional, and educational support to a birthing person before, during, and after birth — and whose work has been proven effective.

Supporting pregnant people is what I do.

My role never looks quite the same, because no person or family I work with is! As a doula, not a care provider, though, one thing that is consistent is that I do not offer or provide medical support.

If I had to give my “style” a name, I’d call it “Quiet Strength.” I bring a calm, peaceful presence into birth spaces, anchored in the many hours of having gotten to know you, and my natural personality.

If you choose me as your doula, we will spend many hours preparing together as you learn what to expect and how to create the experience you desire.

Postpartum

One session may include infant care while the parent sleeps, showers, and/or eats, infant feeding support, verbal check-ins, and connections to relevant outside resources. As time allows, it may also include light housework (ex. laundry, dishes, sweeping), light meal preparation (ex. warming pre-prepared foods), and light care for siblings (with the parent in the home).

Three three-hour long sessions a week for one month postpartum (36 hours total). $25/hr

Four four-hour long sessions a week for one month postpartum (64 hours total). $20/hr

You get a shirt.

Someone else gets birth support.

Community support helps make it possible for me to provide my services to families who cannot currently afford to invest in them. And it spreads the word on why birth support is valuable. Be a part of the work!
