My Services

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.

A doula helps to reduce the stress of the day-to-day details, allowing you and your family to prepare for your newest member. As your doula, I will help you find a sense of calm while planning for the upcoming birth, and encourage communication between you and your caregiver.

  • Assistance with daily household tasks.

  • Meal planning & preparation.

  • Running errands.
