I have been passionate about caring for babies, mothers, and families for most of my life. My work as a postpartum doula allows me to apply my natural and intuitive gifts in communication, organization, and caregiving in a truly meaningful way during the precious time after birth.
My purpose as a postpartum doula is to support you in getting to know your newborn baby and yourself, finding a sense of peace and rhythm in your new paradigm. Whether I am holding baby so you can get some rest or take a shower, preparing a nourishing meal, or offering a listening ear, I want you to have the most healing postpartum experience possible. I provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for you and your baby to rest and recover, empowering you to create a healthy foundation for a bright future with your family.
I feel that humans are born with an innate ability to care for their babies. Raising children is a deeply rewarding and invaluable aspect of life that I am honored to witness and support. I believe that quality postpartum care can contribute greatly to creating a positive future for families and generations to come.

-15+ years of childcare experience
-Excellent nanny and doula references in the Portland area and beyond
