I am a DONA-trained birth and postpartum doula. I am also a certified Hypno-Doula with Hypnobabies. I have a BA in Psychology, have worked in childcare and education, and have federal, state, and child abuse security clearances. I’m also a mother or 3, which were two c-sections and a homebirth. After experiencing some perinatal mood disorders after the birth of my first child, I knew I wanted to learn how to support others through this rite of passage.
I have spent the last 25 years doing birth-work as a labor & postpartum doula, Hypnobirthing instructor and currently as a bereavement doula and educator. In 2018, I founded Pittsburgh Bereavement Doulas, a non-profit that provides free doula support to families experiencing stillbirth, miscarriage and pregnancies deemed non-viable. I also train others to become bereavement doulas through Baby Loss Family Advisors & Baby Loss Doulas. (Note: DONA and Hypnobirthing now expired)

I am a native Pittsburgher; mother of two daughters and grandmother to three. Being a Doula resonates with my soul and makes my heart sing… It is a part of the fulfillment of my destiny! Birth is such a beautiful miracle of life and being able to support a mother, her partner and significant others through labor, delivery and those precious first moments in postpartum is such a remarkable experience and blessing.
I believe every person deserves access to compassionate care. If you or someone you know is pregnant and looking for additional support, it would be my pleasure to be present.
