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!
