As your doula...
My role is to help you see where you are strong + capable. Then we connect those capacities to tools that will support you to move, as gracefully as possible, through your unique birth/postpartum experience. These tools are proven to provide nourishment to your body, mind, and heart and to support you beyond just your birth/postpartum. I facilitate a womb-like environment in which we unfold the areas of your life that need nourishment and support. Then we use your inherent strengths and my skill set to build and nourish those areas.
A mother and family who feel nourished and supported, naturally make healthy choices for their life. It is not my role to help you have a certain kind of birth, rather it is my role to help you have the experience you are having while you are having it. And to equip you with tools that empower you to manage your own life, birth, motherhood by your own definition of healthy.
I have certifications and trainings in: B.A Philosophy, CD(DONA), 200 hr RYT, Licensed Holistic Practitioner (Thai Yoga Massage, Integrative Yoga), Connected Breath Facilitator, Mindfulness Facilitator, Mother Warmer and postpartum doula.
