‘When a baby is born so are the parents.’
The greatest joy and honor of my life has been raising my four incredible children and watching them grow into caring, loving, and compassionate adults. I have learned how much immense love the heart is capable of holding and how much capacity and resourcefulness we have as parents to intuitively raise our children. No experience is more profound and I am honored to help support new families on this incredible and life changing path.
There is much more emphasis on pregnancy, labor and delivery, and less on what happens after the baby has arrived. So often, new parents are left to figure things out on their own. All new parents want to provide the best for their baby, but there aren’t always easy answers to the questions, which can lead them feeling overwhelmed and confused. I am here to help as their guide so they can feel empowered, confident, and at ease, so they can enjoy their new baby as they adjust to a new normal.
As a postpartum doula, new parent educator, newborn sleep educator, and newborn care specialist, I help parents adjust to the transformational ‘womb to world’ transition. I am here to help sort through the barrage of information that comes from media overload, advice given by friends, family, health care providers, and others, so they can find their own path as the unique parents they will become. I am here to give access to evidence and hands-on skills that will increase their competence in parenting, providing opportunities for them to integrate their own beliefs and truths with the most up-to-date information about babies, while helping them prepare for the adjustment to parenting life.
I bring decades of experience to my work to help parents navigate the magical, powerful, and sometimes challenging path of the postpartum journey into parenthood. Over my career, I have been committed to helping empower women as a sexual assault recovery coach and mentor, a domestic violence certified advocate, a women’s empowerment coach, and a meditation and mindfulness instructor. I live in Los Angeles and love spending time with my family, doing pilates, and watching sunsets on the beach.
