I am a trained professional who assists Seattle area families during the critical period after the birth of their baby, offering educational, emotional and physical support. I received my education through the DONA International approved postpartum doula course at the Seattle Midwifery School
and am certified through the Northwest Association of Postpartum Support (NAPS
My goal is to help families have a smoother transition to parenthood by being a peaceful, calm and knowledgeable presence and by encouraging new parents to listen to their inner wisdom. I also seek to connect new parents to community resources that will help them gain the support that they need and desire.
Being invited into your home to help care for your family during this special time is an honor to me. Caring for and nurturing newborns is one of the best benefits of my job, but even more than that I enjoy watching new parents learn to care for their newborn and become confident in their new roles.
My own journey into parenthood began when my son was born in April of 2007. In 2010, my daughter came into our family. As a mother, I understand personally how challenging it can be to adjust to a new baby and the life changes that it brings, whether it is your first or subsequent child.
