I have been supporting pregnant & growing families in Western Massachusetts since 2011 with doula care, childbirth education, and individualized consultations.
As your doula, I support and guide your family in pregnancy and birth using compassion, instinct, respect, and evidence-based care. We work as a team prenatally, during labor, and postpartum toward decisions that are congruent with your family's needs and values. This continuity of care offers you many opportunities to think carefully about your preferences, build trust, and to birth your baby in a deeply meaningful way.
I am a certified childbirth educator and teach small, independent birth classes at Baystate Franklin Medical Center in Greenfield MA. Upcoming classes:
- The Science & Soul of Birth: Evidence-based care for heartfelt people:
- Express class: 3/19 & 3/26
- Evening class: 5/24, 5/31, 6/14, 6/21, & 6/28
What's keeping you up at night? Maybe wondering where and how you should have your baby, worrying about your family's postpartum adjustment, or breastfeeding and returning to work. Sometimes it just takes an hour or two of consult time to work though the decisions you're trying to make, and create a plan.
