Hello! I have over 15 years of working with children and families in some capacity: as a preschool teacher, a nanny, and birthing and raising my own little babies. I also have a masters in Human Ecology with a focus on Child and Family Development. I am a postpartum doula, sibling doula and fertility doula supporting your fertility and conception journey- either aiming to get pregnant or avoid pregnancy.
In my role as a postpartum doula, I strive to support the whole family in welcoming a new baby into the home. Feeding, baby care, self care, sleep, healing...New babies bring big changes! My goal is to ease the transition for new and growing families. I also support other pregnancy outcomes or choices such as miscarriage, loss or, pregnancy release. Choice, autonomy and information are important to me in all aspects of the perinatal journey.
I have supported a diverse array of family arrangements and choices. I have supported BIPOC and LGBTQ families, single parents by choice, families that have utilized gestational carriers, families who experienced extended NICU care, and more.
When not supporting families you can find me doing work in the community with Families for Justice, as a substitute teacher at Creative Learning Preschool, and volunteering at Goodman Community Center. I am also active with the Madison Postpartum Collective and the Wisconsin Abortion Support Network (WASN). I love devouring books, podcasts, tv shows and all things chocolate.
