I am a Carriage House Certified & Hypnobirthing® Certified birth doula and currently training to be a CBC (Certified Breastfeeding/Lactation Counselor). I support all family styles, birth environments, and sensation management preferences.
Before becoming a full time birth doula I lived in Brooklyn for fifteen years working as a visual/performing artist doing book arts, acting, trapeze, improv comedy, working in hospitality and earning a BFA in Creative Writing from Pratt Institute. Having practiced yoga, breathwork and meditation for many years, I’ve experienced the powerful impact our breath and mindset have on our bodies, and as a doula I’ve seen the positive affect they can have on birth experiences and outcomes.
Pregnancy and birth are powerful liminal spaces. I believe in the ancient, innate and intuitive ability that we have to give birth and I respect the threshold that is crossed during that transformative experience. I believe HypnoBirthing® is an intuitive way to guide the body with ease through labor by harnessing the calming and relaxing power of breath and meditation. I bring a unique ability to connect with and support parents using a balance of humor and ritual.
I want you to help you birth your baby confidently, autonomously, and with joy.
