I love San Diego and have lived here since 2007. I met my amazing husband at Rockharbor Church in Costa Mesa during the summer of 2005. We have been married since February 2007 and became parents to our adorable son, Zayne Ezra in February 2010. I have always been interested and captivated by childbirth. One night my husband came home from college and said he’d heard about “The Business of Being Born” movie. That movie changed my life. We wanted to learn everything we could about childbirth. We wanted a Doula for certain. Though my goal was an un-medicated birth, our son was born via cesarean after a long labor. After having my son I reflected back many times over the support my Doula had for me. Now it is my passion to walk beside other moms in their pregnancy, labor and birth.
Please feel free to browse my website.
I’ve had the blessing to go through two DONA workshops. One led by a local and well-respected birth Doula, Stacy Scarborough and the other taught by a seasoned Midwife/Doula, Gerri Ryan. I feel that a woman can labor and birth wherever it is comfortable for her. My training matches that belief. I also believe that the art of the Doula needs to be passed down to the next generation and never lost or forgotten. In addition to my doula training I’ve also been trained as a Full Circle Placenta Specialist and I love sharing the benefits many mama’s have received from my services. I love being a part of the local childbirth community and attend monthly meetings at Best Start Birth Center for Doulas and have joyfully supported and participated in the the inaugural Improving Birth Rally For Change and the most current rally on Labor Day 2012.
