Hi! I am a NYC based certified labor doula, postpartum doula, breastfeeding counselor, placenta encapsulator and HypnoBirthing teacher. I also have a Masters degree in Infancy and Family Development. Being in the presence of birth feels so natural and right. I am deeply called to serve women and their partners in this capacity. It is my core belief that all women deserve to have a joyful and empowering birth experience.
As your birth doula, I will support you in achieving your unique pregnancy and birth goals. In labor, I will help you stay calm and relaxed through discomfort relieving techniques such as varying positions, breath work, the Rebozo technique, massage, aromatherapy and of course all the HypnoBirthing tools! I am proud to assist women in releasing their fears and using hypnosis and deep relaxation in order to have a blissful and transformative birth experience. My primary intention is to stay tuned into your emotional state throughout the process and trust your internal wisdom as a birthing woman and new mother.
In addition to my doula work, I am also a certified Fertile Body Therapist and enjoy assisting couples in achieving their fertility goals with hypnosis and mind body therapies. I am also a children's yoga teacher and certified scuba diver.

I am a Birth & Postpartum Doula, HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, Lactation Counselor and Hypnotist. I was drawn to birth work through curiosity and intrigue. I could not have anticipated the beautiful, empowering nature of birth and all it encompasses. I extended my practice to teaching HypnoBirthing after doula-ing my first HypnoBirth. It was then that I became wholeheartedly convinced of the power of the mind-body connection during pregnancy & childbirth.
As your birth doula I combine visualization & breathing techniques, positive affirmations, light touch massage and rebozo. Providing nonjudgmental support and evidence-based knowledge, I work professionally around your care provider and advocate for your birth preferences.
In January through June 2017 I lived in Tel Aviv, Israel where I led reproductive health workshops and was mentored by a fellow HypnoBirthing Practitioner with 20+ years experience. I am born and raised in NYC and hold a BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design.
I am honored to support expectant parents of my home city!
