I have been attending births as a Labor/Birth Doula and a Homebirth Midwife Assistant since 2003. I have been teaching Independent Childbirth and Breastfeeding Classes since 2005. I can help you have a positive pregnancy experience through preventative care practices. I can help you have a positive labor/birth experience through optimal baby positioning. I can help you have a positive postpartum experience through premium lactation support. Let my 13 years in the childbirth field give you confidence in your future!
I believe ALL families should have access to a supportive & knowledgeable doula regardless of ability to pay. Sliding scale and bartered trades welcome. For families who can afford more, payments made above the standard fee help make it possible to serve other families that would struggle to afford quality doula care.
Additional available services include:
*Education: Pregnancy, Childbirth, Newborn Care, and Lactation/Breastfeeding classes
*HypnoBirthing classes and birth support
*Commemorative Art: birth photography, illustrated portraits, henna, belly casts, or other customized works.
*Labor/birth tub rental
I have recently repatriated to the USA after 28 years in 10 countries. I have experience working with women around the world in many areas of health and education. I am a Cross cultural trainer, Crisis Hotline Counselor and recently became a Doula in Singapore For 1.5 years I operated as a birth and postpartum doula and childbirth educator at a newly opened Unwed Mothers Center, supporting unwed and marginalized women through pregnancy and birth and the postpartum period. I currently live in Boulder and am looking forward to continuing Doula and teaching again. I am hoping to make some contacts in the area and to networking with other birth professionals.
I am a birth doula, childbirth educator, and placenta encapsulation provider serving the Denver metro area. I believe every family should have access to personalized, relational, compassionate support in the childbearing process. It is my goal to build a relationship throughout the prenatal period with each family, providing support and education along the way and then continuous support through labor and delivery in each family’s chosen method of birth.
