Having my sons changed my world. I feel so lucky that I had such a great experience with a Doula at my first sons birth that I wanted to become one myself. I enjoyed the experience so much that I had TWO doulas at my second birth! I decided to leave a career as a flight attendant so I could help other women have their birth their way. Both of my experiences were so different and wonderful, giving birth and becoming a mother have been my greatest achievements.
Birth is one of the most amazing and transformative days in
a woman’s life and I look forward to being there to help make it a good experience. My role is very flexible; I can be as involved as you want me to be. I hope to support you and your partner emotionally, physically and educationally. I don’t come with any agenda, I truly believe this is your experience and want to support your informed decisions fully.
I am was trained by DONA (Doulas of North America) and am aNursing Mothers Counsel trained lactation counsellor. I am a memeber of BABI (Bay Area Birth Info) and participate in doula peer review monthly so I can continue to learn and grow as a doula. I grew up and currently live in San Jose and attend births in the Greater Bay Area.
