I have always known that I would end up in a career that involved working intimately with others, one that filled my heart and the people around me.  I have found that in my work as a postpartum doula.  I aim to help you be confident, connected and rested in the precious moments to months after birth.  I have a certificate in herbal medicine and can offer you herbal support for your recovering body and spirit postpartum.  This may mean drawing you a nice warm bath with a tea of healing flowers in it, and holding your baby while you soak.  Or making a comforting nipple salve to keep at your breastfeeding station, next to your glass of water and snacks.  I have worked many years with families here in portland as a nanny and cherish my connection with the parents and kiddos.  In 2013 I started working as a postpartum doula.  In Portland we are lucky to have many resources for new moms, from free breastfeeding support groups to baby momma fitness classes and even a dad’s group.  I can help you get connected to the community and provide you with information on newborn care and tips for understanding your baby’s cues and calming him or her.  Ultimately I believe that you are the expert when it comes to your baby and I support you with the least amount of intervention possible as you and your little one bond and get to know each other.
