My journey to becoming a postpartum professional began in my high school child development class. I was fascinated with the postpartum period and how it seemed like a hugely important time in a child and mother development. I vowed to make supporting new mothers and their families my life’s work.
I am passionate about supporting birthing people and their families. I got my start in the field working with family centered nonprofits to volunteering with low-income parents and families in underserved communities.
It wasn’t until I gave birth to my son, that I discovered the world of postpartum doulas. Ever since then I have been hooked. First, studying childbirth education and developing a unique and customized postpartum education curriculum and then going on to train as a postpartum doula.
I am constantly adding to my education and skill set hoping to one day provide full wrap around postpartum services for all parents who need them.
I believe that when we focus on truly nurturing and nourishing the birthing person in meaningful ways, we create the perfect atmosphere for a happy, healthy and thriving baby (and family!)
