Happy Mama Healthy Baby Community Birth and Postpartum Doula

In college, I was at the gym once and I saw a pregnant woman in a fitness class next to me. It was at that moment something clicked in me where I just needed to know everything about pre-conception, pregnancy and postpartum. I wanted to understand hormones and fertility, the physiology of pregnancy and childbirth, best practices for nutrition and physical activity, child development, parenting support, and more. Since then, for the past ten years, I have continued to self-educate, launched a podcast called ‘Not A Mama Yet’ in 2018 covering these topics, and became a certified Birth Doula in March 2020.
 
I love supporting women in any way I can with resources, tools, and emotional support throughout the many phases of life from periods to postpartum. I am excited to be part of the Happy Mama Healthy Baby Alliance serving families who understand the incredible benefits of having the support from a doula as they grow their families.
 
I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I lived in San Francisco and New York City from 2009-2019. I am married, I have a 14-year old stepson and two Chihuahua Dachshunds named Frankie and Pepino.
