I have been called to the work of birth, and that special time in the prenatal and postpartum, since I was a small child and that work has manifested in many ways. As a birth worker, I am committed to providing compassionate, non-judgmental support for you and your family. My life experience is wide ranging and I bring all my experiences to my work. I also bring a year learning the art of Midwifery through an intensive apprenticeship in rural Iowa to my work.
I have always had a high reverence for food. My choice to run an organic farm in 2017, comes from my deep need for knowledge of our food systems. Through my experience in birth work, I have seen the great difference nutrition makes in creating healthy babies and healing in the postpartum realm. Pregnant folks who are nourished have starkly different experience in healing and traversing the landscape of parenthood.
My background and education is informed by social justice work. I believe birth work is social justice work. How we birth can manifest change in our society. Treating families and babies with the highest respect and compassion is the foundation of justice. I have stay committed through previously volunteering with Birth Justice Project, supporting incarcerated birthers, and attending training in full spectrum care, harm reduction, and supporting trans birthers. My trainings have primarily come from Cornerstone Doula Trainings, an organization highly committed to social justice, and training rights informed birth advocates.

I am currently only serving postpartum clients as I prepare for my own birth journey. I provide day and night care, please contact me for more information.
