I assisted my first home birth in 2001, and became a DONA certified birth doula in 2009.  I studied assistant midwifery skills with renowned midwives Ina May Gaskin and Pamela Hunt at The Farm in Tennessee, and with Orgasmic Birth author Elizabeth Davis in California.  I am also a certified Hypnobabies doula and DONA trained postpartum doula.  I offer placenta encapsulation and day or overnight postpartum help. I had my own daughter at home in 2013.
