Teaching yoga for the past 6 years, I’m already familiar with guiding people to calm their breath, to listen to their body, and most importantly to smile through the uncomfortable moments. Giving birth is not just about having a baby, but becoming a family, and is this not one of the best reasons to smile, even through the uncomfortable. My role as your doula would be to help educate, support, and honor your birth and postpartum choices, without judgement. As well as encourage partners to be fully present and confident with their role as your support person.
I did my Birth Doula and Postpartum Doula training through CAPPA International and am currently working towards certification for both. I am also 85hr certified Prenatal Yoga instructor. In my free time I enjoy hikes with my family, laughing with my partner Troy, taking our dog Chomper to the beach, and exploring this world in a whole new way as I see it through my daughter and son’s eyes.
