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.

As a Birth and Postpartum Doula, I have been honored to serve many families in New York City from varying backgrounds and household incomes. I honed my skills at the renowned Doula Trainings International and am certified in Infant and Child CPR. I am also a Certified Lactation Consultant and trained in Mental Health First Aid, Spinning Babies and HypnoBirthing.
As a HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, I work with clients who are interested in giving birth using HypnoBirthing’s unique breathing, relaxation, visualization and meditative techniques, which offer the birthing family a way to prepare for a peaceful and beautiful birth experience.
I believe it is every birthing person’s right to choose the kind of birth they want and to have an abundance of support throughout their entire journey of pregnancy. The depth of my knowledge and continuous attention to detail, allows me to guide families with great care, especially when facing potentially difficult or emergency situations that need to be evaluated in critical moments.
The fifteen years of experience running my own wellness company – where I practiced as a Health Coach and Life Mentor – give me the ability to care for my clients on a deeply personal level. I have a passion for cultivating empowered birthing persons and healthy babies through education, compassion, and nurturing.
When I’m not doula-ing, I’m doing yoga, going on adventures with my husband, dancing, and musing on life’s many mysteries.
