Mother, Birth Doula, Yoga Teacher, Placenta Encapsulator, and San Francisco Yoga Studio Owner.
It's an honor to have served mothers at home (with a homebirth midwife), in all five SF hospitals (St. Lukes, CPMC, Kaiser, SFGH, and UCSF) and the San Francisco Birth Center. I've been in practice full time since 2012 and have completed the Heart and Hands midwifery intensive with Elizabeth Davis, APPA's PE certification, and an OSHA compliant bloodborne pathogens training. Currently insured through CM&F #702926.
My Doula Philosophy:
- I believe in supporting pregnancy, labor and birth with evidenced based care.
- I believe there are as many ways to give birth as there are women in the world, and that a doula’s role is to encourage and unfold your distinct birthing style while offering helpful suggestions and information.
- I believe in informed consent and offer balanced information about the risks and benefits of procedures so that you can make well-informed decisions about what’s right for you.
