I am a DONA certified birth doula, certified midwife assistant, lactation specialist, childbirth educator and a all around birth advocate. I have been married to my soul mate since 1976. We have two children and five gorgeous grand children. I have had the honor and privilege to be at all of my grand childrens births
I have always been drawn to birth. I have been doing Doula work my whole life. Helping animals, family and friends birth their babies their way.
There is always something new to learn. I have taken many different classes related to pregnancy, labor, birth and breast feeding. Each class as well as each birth reveals something new. I have taking classes in aromatherapy, essential oils, ayuverdic midwifery, accupressure for labor and birth. Breast feeding and lactation classes. Nils Bergman, Perinatal and Neuroscience and infant care, Advanced Doula Training, Miriam Maslim Class on Loss, Survivors Penny Simkin. Sacral Crainial work for Infants, childbirth education three year program. Assitant midwife training on the Farm in Tennessee with Ina May Gaskin. Intergrating Difficult Birth , Robbie Flyod Davis, Birthing from Within a Baby's Experience of Birth, Pam England, and much more. Each year I seek a new class to attend a new view point so that I can better serve my clients.
Pregnancy, labor and birth are completely amazing, it transforms people. Women become mothers and men become fathers. Families are born and created. No two pregnancies are alike and no two births are the same. Each persons journey is their own! It is my goal to help the transition and journey be as smooth and enjoyable as it can be. A loving memory forever.
Education is the key. Understanding the physical and emotional changes that can occur during pregnancy, labor and birth can truly make the world of difference.
Knowing your patient rights, what options and what choices you have during the process can all help create the desired birth experience you want to have.There are always choices and there are always options!
Making sure that every mother or father feels like they have control and their voices are heard. Creating a birthing space that is safe secure and calm is extremely important. A birthing nest ! This nest can be created no matter where you choose to birth.
Sonoma County is a very special county because families have the option of homebirth, birth center and hospital births. I have attended births at all the area hospitals. I know many of the local midwifes and I have done many births at the birthing center.
I hope I can assist you with your journey. Please contact me with any questions. I enjoy speaking or emailing with people about birth, providing information, helping them find the perfect Doula, midwife, place to birth or whatever you may need.
Let me help make your experience simple and memorable!
