About Me

After birthing four children, I knew I could help other women have a positive and memorable birth experience. I have assisted in the birthing of over 100 babies and have had the experience of working with all types of births including twins, c-sections, epidurals, and even water births.

I attended the Seattle Midwifery School and am certified as a Birth and Postpartum Doula and Lactation Specialist. I am located in Kirkland, but have worked with clients all over the greater Seattle area.

As your Doula, I will support all unmedicated or medicated births. Now that my children are older, I can take care of you and your families.
