As an experienced doula and lactation professional, I pride myself in providing you and your partner with care, understanding, information and support before, during, and after the birthing process. Our initial meeting will help me get to know you & understand your particular needs, as every pregnancy and postpartum experience is different. To schedule an initial consultation, or to learn more about my practice, please contact me.
