I a DONA Certified Birth Doula, Hypnobirthing Practitioner and Mother of three boys (including twins). I was drawn to the wonder of natural birth during my first pregnancy, when after extensive research, I chose to give birth at home. I have been active as a doula since my twin pregnancy when I experienced that a high-risk hospital birth can be equally empowering with a supportive team. I have had the honor of attending a diversity of births (unmedicated and medicated vaginal births, twin births, first time mothers, epidurals, VBACs) in homes, hospitals, and birth centers.
I am passionate about providing access to information to increase self-advocacy and have been counseling families for over 15 years. I also teach guided Breathwork sessions for emotional healing and trauma release.My lifelong study of movement and embodied spiritual practices inform my work with expecting parents. I believe in holding space for remembering the body's intuitive wisdom to give birth (with and without medical assistance). It brings me great joy to accompany families on their journey

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.
