A Little Bit About Me:
I was introduced to the birth world in 2010 when I had the unique opportunity to attend my first births while apprenticing under a sage midwife in Northern California. I knew immediately this was my life’s calling. I then shifted from many years of working with children and adults with developmental disabilities to spending a few years living overseas on the Thai/Myanmar border working with refugees, migrant women and children assisting as a birth and sex educator among other things. In 2016 I returned home to the Bay Area to pursue birth work as a profession and completed my birth and postpartum doula trainings.
I am passionate about supporting birthing people and their families through the transition to parenthood. This is such a sacred time. I believe in the importance of offering evidence based information about birth, giving you a full scope of all your options so that you can make well informed decisions that feel right for you and your family. I believe people should birth where they feel comfortable, safe and empowered and have supported clients birthing at home, in hospitals and at birth centers. believe in the wisdom and intuition of the human body and am honored to help safeguard the birthing process.
As a queer person myself, I am dedicated to offering inclusive care. I welcome people of all identities and family structures. I am down-to-earth and compassionate in my care offering a steady sense of peace to your process. I rely on my intuition and learned skills to help meet you and your partner where you are. I want you to feel safe, supported and educated going into your birth experience.
