Available for births at Baystate Franklin Medical Center in summer 2020.

I received my training as a birth doula and childbirth educator in 2003, as a component of a year of midwifery training at WomanCraft Midwifery.

When I began attending births in early 2004, I was lucky to quickly gain a wide range of experiences. I've attended home births and hospital births; Cesarean births and VBACs; quick and easy births and long, slow labors; water births and land births. I've worked with survivors of sexual abuse, LGBTQ families, and families with special spiritual needs. I welcome families of all configurations, and a sliding scale is available - no one is turned away for lack of funds.

A specialty of my practice is educating parents about simple ways to encourage their babies to be well-positioned for birth, increasing the chances of a shorter, less complicated labor. Since my clients have begun using these simple techniques, I've noticed that their labors are a great deal shorter on average. This is one of the best-kept childbirth secrets, and it's a privilege to share it!

I love the challenge of meeting what each unique labor brings, and I feel very honored to serve my clients on one of the happiest days of their lives.
