I'm a DONA International certified Birth Doula and a DONA trained Postpartum Doula with a background in feminist studies. I have 8 years of experience working with mothers, newborns, and infants. I'm a Steering Committee member of Imeinu Doulas, a Jewish doula collective serving Bay Area families. Formerly, I was a volunteer doula at San Francisco General Hospital and at Homeless Prenatal Program.

I bring a warm and calming presence to birth and pregnancy, as well as my breadth of experience with births ranging from lowest intervention to planned cesarean. I also offer a body positive approach to birth that celebrates size diversity.

I'm deeply inspired by the families I work with. I believe that birth is a sacred process. Your birth should be treated with the utmost respect.

When not attending births as a doula, I'm studying midwifery and enjoying life in the Bay Area.
