Since having children of my own, I have come to honor the significance of what is probably the most profound, yet so often underestimated, life change a woman will experience - her transition into motherhood.
The first weeks and months of motherhood come with joy, but also challenges. It is not uncommon for a woman to feel a myriad of strong emotions during the postpartum period, even if she has had children before. In addition to elation and wonder, many women feel overwhelmed, unprepared, exhausted and isolated.
My passion lies in providing a safe haven of compassion and unconditional support to women, and all new parents, as they navigate the "4th trimester". I come into your home with resources, evidence based information, professional hands, and an open heart, making your transition not only easier, but also one of deep renewal and peace. Time and space is given to experience the present and move forward, to learn and to grow. I love helping new mothers, and in turn their families, feel connected and confident.
During my long career as a professional dancer and photographer, I completed my training as a Postpartum Doula with Birth Arts International, and later began working with families full time. I am a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor, Newborn Mothers Postpartum Professional, and Newborn Care Specialist.
