Doula & Placenta Specialist

If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.

Navigating the trials and tribulations of parenting can be exhausting. The world is filled with books and websites written by experts that tell you how to move through this journey. A whole smörgåsbord of them exist:

  • Well meaning friends/family

  • What to Expect

  • The Bump

  • Baby Center

Just like an exciting potluck with friends and family can leave you stuffed and questioning your life choices, listening to unsolicited parenting advice, reading conflicting books, or following the latest drama in Facebook parenting groups can be an unpleasant experience.

As a doula, I help my clients to navigate the bounty of information that is available to them with unbiased and evidence based support. Doulas are experts of their local birth climates, we are tapped into different providers and styles of care. Each and every family I serve is unique, special and important in their own way. So is their journey. I treat each client and family as their own new path is being formed for them, and help them to navigate in a safe and comfortable way that works for them.
