I have been supporting women in childbirth since my first birth as a doula in 1998. I became a Certified Professional Midwife, CPM, in 2016 after years of schooling and apprenticeship. I am also a RN, herbalist, doula trainer, childbirth educator, NARM midwifery preceptor, and mother of five. I have had the privilege of assisting many different women, families and communities during during their journey to motherhood. I also offer Birth Trauma Transformation (BTT) services
