Doula

Happy Mama Healthy Baby Community Doula

Hello! I run a judgement-free, anti-racist birth doula practice out of Highland Park California. With a lot of compassion, and a little bit of laughter, I reduce fears in the birth room, while creating an empowering space for my clients to choose what’s right for them.
 
I grew up with a biologist mom and a geologist dad, so I have high science-literacy, but a deep respect and understanding of prayer, meditation, and the mind-body connection.
 
I’m a DONA-trained birth doula. My first two careers were in the entertainment industry, and I’m so happy, now, to be spending my working hours helping others. Doula work marries my enthusiasm for advocacy, feminist values, nurturing personality, and service-minded ambitions. My mission is to support birthing parents in achieving the birth experience they desire, reduce the affect of bias and prejudice in the birth world, and create beautiful photographs of these singular moments in my clients’ lives.
