Birth is ceremonial. It is an ancient tradition. It’s been done for thousands of years and sometimes as humans in a modern world, we sterilize and complicate the knowing wisdom of the human body. As your Doula, my calling is to create an environment that makes space for you to feel respected, cared for, and witnessed. There is no way to predict how each birth will unfold, but I am here to help encourage a thriving birthing person and a thrive newborn no matter where the birth experience takes you.


In my presence, you don’t need to hold back. My ability to hold your perceived “mess”, your fear — is immense. When we are fully authentic, we are fucking POWERFUL. I would love to be one of your guides, to show you just how vast your capacity is.

When you work with me, you will be fully supported in your mind, heart, and body.

I recognize the importance of each person's intersectional identities. My birth and postpartum support extends itself across all identity and cultural expressions. I am especially passionate about supporting pregnant folks who identify with the following communities in the Greater Seattle area:

  • LGBTQ+

  • Single Parents

  • People of Color

  • Infertility (TTC) and Loss

  • Birthing Persons over 40

  • Incarcerated populations

  • Survivors of sexual abuse and incest

  • Military spouse populations
