Most of my life was spent in the performing arts, traveling the world with a dance company, and photographing my journeys. But having children shifted my perspective and revealed a new calling. I wanted to create the community and support that I myself longed for around as a new mother. Through my own story, and those of women around me, I came to understand the significance of what is probably the most profound, yet so often undervalued, life change a person can experience - the transition into motherhood, and parenthood. It’s the birth that comes after childbirth. Just like childbirth, the “4th trimester” is an intense, life altering, and vulnerable time when we are born as as mothers and fathers. We question everything as we find our new normal, learn and grow in unfathomable ways, and are catapulted into the unknown. It is a time when we need others to encourage us, advocate for us, lift us up, and celebrate with us.
My passion and joy lies in providing a safe haven for families, giving them the compassion and unconditional support they deserve as they navigate all the newness.
I am am grateful to have have been working intimately with families for almost a decade, and I look forward to working with many more.
I make home visits, providing evidence based information, trusted resources, professional hands, and an open heart, making your transition not only easier, but also one of deep renewal and peace. It is my priority to keep you nourished, cared for, and rested so you can be your best self. I hold the space for you to experience and process your new role, to heal, learn, and grow. I love helping birthing people, and their families, feel strong, confident and connected.
