I am a DONA certified Birth and Postpartum Doula,
serving families in Bucks and Montgomery counties (PA)
and Hunterdon and Mercer counties (NJ),
as well as many neighboring towns and communities since 1999.
I have the privilege and great joy of providing nurturing
doula support to women and families before, during,
and after childbirth...
as well as throughout their postpartum "fourth trimester".
My mission is to help a woman and her partner achieve the most gratifying birth and postpartum experience possible, encouraging a more confident and joyful beginning for their growing family.
Pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood are profound
life experiences that deserve unconditional support,
compassion, reverence, and respect.
I am honored to journey with you.
