In following a lifelong passion for birth and women’s rights, I have a sincere desire to assist each family in connecting with their own pregnancy, birth, and postpartum choices. I find it immensely humbling to support women as they grow, birth, and nourish their babies, and I am honored each time I am invited to be part of such an incredible life experience. I am proud to support all families regardless of race, faith, sexuality, gender identity, marital status, age, immigration status or family configuration.
I have trained with BAI and Stillbirthday as a birth & bereavement doula and lactation educator, and with Life Cycles Collective Doulas as a postpartum doula. I've also trained with Birthing From Within, and am trained and certified in the use of rebozo techniques and placenta encapsulation. I am skilled in birth photography and am thrilled to offer it as part of my services. I am a proud member of the Buffalo Doula Collective. I have a special interest in infertility and pregnancy following infertility. Having previously struggled with infertility myself, I have a unique understanding of the emotions, stress, and technology surrounding those who fight this battle.
I am a born and raised resident of the Buffalo, NY area. I love our city and watching it constantly grow and develop! I am married and a proud mother of two incredible children, one born in a hospital and one at home. I love reading, being outdoors, and biking.
