What is a “Massage Doula”?
The word “doula” comes from the Greek word meaning “servant” or “Handmaiden” and is used to describe someone who assists a woman through labor. A birth doula is a professionally trained childbirth assistant who sees the mother throughout her pregnancy, labor, and after birth to provide emotional, physical, and informational support.
As your Massage Doula, I also bring all my skills as a licensed massage therapist who trained & certified in massage for pregnancy, labor, and postpartum.

What is a “Maternity Coach”?
A maternity coach provides guidance, information, education and resources to parents during all stages of expectancy, from trying to conceive all the way thru postpartum to help them make informed choices and ease their transition into parenthood.

Massage Doula for Your Labor & Birth
We'll have several visits and check-ins over the course of your pregnancy to define and clarify your options and preferences, as well as filling your "toolbox" with skills and techniques for you and your partner to use during labor.
During your labor and birth, I will provide as much support and guidance as you (and your partner) need to bring forth your birth vision and facilitate the most positive birth and immediate postpartum experience attainable.
As you move into your postpartum recovery, we'll have a couple more visits to ensure you and your family are transitioning well and have any additional resources your may need. I'll also be available to listen as you process your birth story and to answer questions during the 1st half of your 4th trimester.
Maternity Coach for Your Baby Planning
If you don't want/need the full support of a doula (or you're still in the preconception phase), I can help you prepare for the new changes coming to your family by giving you the tools you need to make educated decisions. Whatever your needs, I will help you design a customized maternity plan for you new life and baby according to your individual parenting philosophy, personality, interests and lifestyle. My goal is to help you choose the best options for you and your baby, so that you can become the parent you want to be while enjoying the process, stress-free.
I will provide support as your doula for any choice of birth environments, either in-person or virtually. Please check birth attendance availability calendar, if you're wanting full doula support. If your estimated due date is unavailable, maternity coaching and massage services are available anytime during your preconception, pregnancy, or 4th trimester.
