I am changing careers to become a nurse and eventually a midwife, and am currently in nursing school. I have taken a Birth Doula Training class with Warm Welcome Birth and have worked with several clients as a volunteer doula. I bring decades of experience in the social service and social justice fields, and am passionate about birther-centered care, reproductive justice and birthing justice. I am open-minded and am a sensitive listener and communicator. I also have two young children of my own. I am happy to provide references from previous clients. I am able to provide virtual doula services during the pandemic, and, depending on hospital protocols and a client's individual situation, I may be able to provide in-person support if we conclude that that feels like a safe option for both of us. I look forward to connecting with you!
