I am the mother of two young adults and have resided on the west side of Los Angeles since 1998. I was drawn to postpartum doula work because I believe all families deserve support and care after the birth of a child. During this time of transition, families should feel entitled to assurance, education, advice, support, and being taken care of. I trained with DONA International in 2019 and became a New Parent Educator in 2023 and have worked with many families in the areas of lactation support, sibling support and creating healthy routines to set their families up for success.
I am a member of Doula of North America (2019) and Doula Association of Southern California board member (2020) and a New Parent Educator (2023). I trained with DONA in 2019 and with CAPPA in 2023. What drew me to doula work is that I wanted to help those, like myself, who were unfamiliar and felt unsure of how to take care of a baby. My services include New Parent Education classes (private) and I have experience with twins, preemies, single parenting, toddler parenting training, as well as baby massage. In addition I have infant CPR, chest-feeding, and cloth diapering training.
