About Your Trainer
Thirty Years of Experience in Perinatal Education
• ICEA Certified Childbirth and Postnatal Educator
• DONA International Certified Birth Doula Trainer
• Education and Resource Chair – Oregon Doula Association
I co-founded a non-profit organization in my community that offered expansive education and support services to expectant and new parents for 10 years there and for 15 years at our local hospital. I also provided pre and post-partum depression support services in my community for over 12 years, Proudly, I can boast that I am a co-author of the book, Mothering Twins.
I have attended over 200 amazing births and feel I have made the most difference doing this work. I am honored to be a birth doula, and I have been doing doula workshops since 1994, passing on what I have learned from so many inspiring women and men in the field. Those who have attended the workshops have also contributed so much to making the experience powerful, dynamic, and rewarding for all. This is my life’s work and I still enjoy every minute of it!
