Oops! Our computer is taking a nap. Refreshing this page often wakes it up.
I grew up in Berkeley, California, and was raised by my lovely single mother, nanny, and grandparents. I always had a deep-rooted love for mamas and babies. As soon as I was old enough to provide childcare, I did, and still do, but now in the form of postpartum support. The summer before my junior year of college, I went through a traumatic hiking accident, which left me concussed and “out of commission” for some time. This experience opened doors of holistic healing for me that I have gladly stepped into and don’t see myself leaving anytime soon. Going through this, I discovered the power of herbalism, acupuncture, energy healing, and many more modalities! With the support of friends, family, healers, doctors and the newfound mindset that “my body has the wisdom to heal itself,” with intentional support, I did heal. I then returned to college to finish my degree in Anthropology, with emphases in Medical and Feminist Anthropology.
Olivia is a professional with a personal touch and is truly amazing at creating a sacred space to share the intimate experience of birth. She provided support, information, and a whole lot of compassion during my journey of pregnancy and giving birth for the first time. As I experienced challenges of a high-risk birth defect, she was by our side reminding me how resilient and capable a baby + I are. When I was overwhelmed with the situation she would remain calm and help me to regain ground to advocate and seek answers. When it came time for my daughter to arrive, there was a shelter in place and extreme restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She was flexible and found a way to support my birth virtually, including thoroughly creating a toolkit and preparing the father of my baby over video call before the hospital. An authentic and genuine doula, I sincerely recommend her services. ~Annabelle

My approach

My experiences gave me insights and much wisdom around the human experience, and a deep calling to share these gifts with others, especially birthing people. Having gone through these two experiences, I discovered the importance of support and human resilience, and how impactful it is to tell your story in a safe, sacred container. I find great joy in supporting people and families through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum periods, as it can be challenging in these transitional times, but doesn’t have to be, and that’s why I’m here. If you’ve made it this far, thanks for reading! Please feel free to reach out to me about anything at all, I am always happy to talk with you.
