Doula

Co-Coordinator, Community Doula Program

 

 

As the co-coordinator of the Happy Mama Healthy Baby Community Doula Program, I look forward to discussing your birthing needs and helping to match you with a Doula that is a perfect fit for you.

 

I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula, and a graduate from Towson University (Towson, MD) with a degree in Biology and a dual minor in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Bioinformatics (MBIII) and Women Studies. During my research and preparation for birth work, I fell in love with holistic birthing methods. I have been a doula since 2011. I  have assured and assisted VBAC moms, teen moms, and moms who have opted for a traditional hospital birth atmosphere as well as water birth practices. I have been a Volunteer Doula with this organization since 2011.

 

I don’t have any children at this time. I prefer to help bring life into the world and I plan to become a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM). 

 

I have been fortunate to be mentored by some of the very best and established doulas and OB/GYNs in California. My skills are to efficiently direct your senses from the discomfort of labor via my massaging techniques, touch, and use of sound, and changing of positions to aid in the progression of your labor.I would be delighted to help support your preferences and assist with your emotional, informational, and physical support during pregnancy/ labor and postpartum.
