Women need a safe emotional harbor to participate fully in the transformative power of birth. I help hold the space where families can experience and honor birth, whatever that experience may be for them. I am dedicated to journeying alongside parents-to-be as they take part in birth as a rite of passage.
The doulas of Peninsula Birth Companions were very calm and caring people, which is why we chose them. ~S. H.

My approach

I became a doula in 2003 as a result of the life-changing experiences of birthing my two sons with doulas to support me. I am dedicated to journeying alongside parents-to-be as they take part in birth as a rite of passage. I have volunteered with the Nursing Mothers Counsel since 2000 and have trained as a childbirth educator through Birth Works. I am also a fiction writer, with two published novels (Dance of Souls and What Remains Unsaid) as well as numerous published and award-winning short stories to my name.
