I began my career as a doula after the birth of my second child in 2002. My practice is guided by a philosophy of nurturing, non-judgmental care that encompasses the entire family and fosters a team approach to working with medical staff. I support couples through the prenatal, birth and postpartum periods including lactation. It is of great importance to me that families feel informed, safe and empowered throughout their journey into birth and new parenthood. I completed my certification as a birth doula, and training as a post partum doula, through DONA International. I now share a practice with another wonderful doula by the name of Candace Palmerlee. Together we serve families in the Berkeley/Oakland area. Aside from my own practice, I  also coordinate a volunteer doula program that serves low-income clinic families delivering at Alta Bates Hospital.
