Nice to Meet You
I provide doula support for families in the San Diego area and absolutely love it. I am continually amazed by the strength of the moms I support and humbled by every birth I witness. Not only will I be your doula through thick and thin, but also a friend. I have been very fortunate for the friendships that have formed through my doula work. The birth of your baby is an extremely intimate and life changing moment and I am honored to be a part of the journey.
