I am a DONA certified Birth and Postpartum Doula
and a Lamaze certified Childbirth Educator located near Doylestown PA.
I have been providing nurturing guidance and compassionate care
to birthing and postpartum families in Bucks and Montgomery Counties
as well as in surrounding communities since 1999.
I support all families regardless of race, faith, age, marital status, sexuality, gender identity, or immigration status.
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 very honored to journey with you.
