As a young child, I was fascinated by pregnant people and always curious about babies - What are they thinking? How did they get in there? How do they get out?
It wasn't until 2012 that I actually saw for myself how the "getting out" really went down, when I was lucky enough to attend the serene, midwife-attended home birth of a friend (under the guise of caring for her child, who slept though the whole thing). As I stepped out into the cool predawn, I thought to myself, "That cannot be the last birth I go to." And it wasn't.
I eagerly trained and then certified as a Birth Arts International birth and postpartum doula, and I continue to enrich that certification with extensive reading, mentorship, workshop attendance, and immersion in current research and best practices, to better serve and support families in Long Beach, CA. This work has brought me purpose, healing, and so much joy. Thank you for considering my services!
