About me

I am prenatal and postpartum chef, herbalist and yoga teacher. I believe that whole foods and plants are our greatest healers. I feel continually awed by all aspects of birth; serving families during this incredible time in life and helping them thrive is truly my passion.

How I work with parents

I provide in-home services as a prenatal and postpartum chef, herbalist and doula.
I cook nourishing and healing organic meals for new families in the privacy of their own homes.

As a CLC, I support families with breastfeeding.

I also teach both private and group prenatal yoga classes and private postpartum you, breath-work, bodywork and core integrity sessions.

I offer photography services, both portraits and day-in-the-life photos, to new and expecting families.

I am also working on a line of healing postpartum teas, to be launched in the fall of 2018.
