About Me 


I am a Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, and the mom of two sweet, rambunctious boys; the first was born via emergency c-section and the second was a VBAC. I believe that women's bodies are knowledgeable in the birthing process, and that another female presence during labor can be soothing and empowering. I am excited to be that presence for your birth! 

I am a native Northern Californian and graduated from UC Santa Cruz. I attended the Natural Resources Birth Doula Training which included 36 hours of material in:

  • Comprehensive understanding of labor and birth

  • Comfort measures and relaxation techniques

  • Positions for an active birth

  • Emotional support for women and their partners

  • Consumer advocacy and informed choice

  • Understanding the pros and cons of medical technology in birth

I also attended the Cornerstone Childbirth Educator Program.

I am based in Oakland and am available for births in both the East Bay and San Francisco.
