Oops! Our computer is taking a nap. Refreshing this page often wakes it up.
My philosophy is that for the vast majority of women, birth works best when supported with patience and left to follow its own path with as little intervention as possible. By sharing information, providing encouragement and supporting their choices, I help women feel respected and listened to so they can look back on labor and birth as a positive and empowering experience.
I would highly recommend Peninsula Birth Companions. I found them to be highly professional, supportive, and knowledgeable. ~J. W.

My approach

My decision to become a doula and childbirth educator grew from the birth of my daughter in 1999. The event, though long and full of challenges, was empowering and made me re-evaluate my chosen vocation and train to become a childbirth educator, doula, and yoga instructor.


Free initial consultation: Yes

Birth Doula:

  • $2500 for first baby
  • Discounted rate for second & subsequent babies
  • First half of the fee is due when you sign the contract. Second half is payable at 38 weeks.
