My Philosophy

Knowledge and the grounded confidence to have the conversations that matter and bring peace of mind.

Being heard and respected at all points in pregnancy, birth and postpartum. 

When clients have this, they are able to make choices for their pregnancy, surrogacy, birth and postpartum experiences and dialog from a place of knowledge with their care providers.


Every woman has the ability to birth from a position of strength, and that your partner, when given the tools needed, is able to engage their own birth journey from that same position of strength. I am there to support, encourage and hold space for you both so that you can focus on your journey.


With 30 plus years of experience supporting families I have found my professional home as an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, Birth and Postpartum Doula, and Childbirth Educator .


I am an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, Certified Educator of Infant Massage, Birth and Postpartum Doula. 

Supporting Families locally in and around the Bend, Redmond, LaPine, Madras and surrounding areas of Central Oregon.
