Doula, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, Childbirth Educator, Student Midwife

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

As a doula, I have supported over 170 families in the Puget Sound on their birthing journey's.  I actively support families to birth as they choose, regardless of birth setting, birth preferences or health history.  I find enjoyment supporting all families, and have experience/training with Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC), Scheduled Cesarean Birth, and in supporting those with PTSD and a history of abuse. I am an active member of the LGBTQIA + comunity and strive provide inclusive care.

I became a Certified Doula through DONA International (Doulas Of North America) in 2010.  In 2016 I took my journey further and became a Birth Assistant for New Day Midwifery and The Birth House and I am a student at the Midwives College of Utah to pursuing my Bachelors in Midwifery.   I am trained and certified in Neonatal Resuscitation.  This has given me an additional tool of understanding and support when resuscitation becomes necessary, I can talk families through the transition.  I have been trained in Placenta Encapsulation training by Carrie Kenner with Big Belly Services and am currently completing my Childbirth Educator Certification through ICEA.
