Postpartum Doula

The postpartum experience is a miraculous time filled with joy, sleepless nights and so many unknowns. My goal is to bring your family the calm and support to enjoy the time together, the grace to know you are the best parents for your baby, and that you are doing your best.


It’s a true joy to work with families during the precious time of welcoming new babies home and through the transition into parenthood. I love educating, empowering and supporting families and moms to maximize parental well-being, sleep and overall family care. Becoming a parent is one of the hardest and most rewarding life transformations and I am honored to be a part of this special journey.  

I am a mother of two girls with 7 years of experience working with newborns and mothers during the postnatal period. I have a BA from University of Washington with a minor in Women's Studies and received my professional DONA approved Postpartum Doula Training through the Simkin Center for Allied Birth Professions at Bastyr University. My evidence-based approach is grounded in the belief that all families are deserving of supportive, dedicated and non-judgmental postpartum care. During the postnatal period, empathy, love, sufficient sleep – along with an extra set of helping hands – can go a long way to allow families to thrive. I bring calm, compassionate care and a nurturing heart to your family and provide physical, emotional and practical support to empower you forward into parenthood with confidence. I strive to meet families where they are and offer judgment-free support tailored to your family’s specific needs.

My passion in working with families during the postnatal period began after the birth of my oldest daughter. As I was deep in the throes of healing from a traumatic birth, I quickly realized how much support and strength I would need to get through this phase while also physically recovering myself. In talking with other new moms in my community, this was a deficit felt by many of us and the need for more hands-on support and education during this time was an overwhelming theme. My own experience through birth recovery and the postnatal period inspired me to be the help for others that I wish I would have received. I believe that parents asking for help during this time shows their strength and that it really does take a village to get through. It is an honor and a gift to be a trusted part of your family’s village.
