My Training

I am trained and certified as a Childbirth Doula through the Doulas of North America (DONA).

I am trained in breastfeeding assistance, am an experienced nursing mother myself, and am passionate in helping new mom’s and their babies establish a breastfeeding relationship that works for them.

I took a Bradley Method childbirth class series as part of my certification, have attended Hypnobirthing classes, and am always eager to learn more.

I am currently enrolled in the Advanced Women’s Herbal and Aromatherpy course for doula’s through Birth Arts International, and I am excited to add this skill to my services!

I have experience working with families in the following areas: VBAC, pregnancy after a previous loss, preterm labor, cesarean birth, homebirth, single mothers, infertility, and of course natural physiological birth. I am also trained in perinatal loss, and have attended conferences to further my education in this area.

I have attended births at all of the local Rochester area hospitals.
