About me

I am an active birth doula, childbirth educator, pre/postnatal yoga teacher and MUTU® Systems trainer. I have been assisting expecting families in the New York Metro area since 2003. What I have found from going to hundreds of births is that women are often under prepared for the 2nd Stage of Labor; The Pushing Part. Which may contribute to many hours of ineffective pushing, preventable tearing, medical interventions or sometimes a cesarean. I developed my Pushing Power classes to help inform and prepare for effective pushing and optimal recovery.

I am passionate about helping moms prepare both body + mind for a positive birth experience and assist them to make a full recovery postpartum.
I am a Certified Childbirth Educator (LAMAZE and Childbirth Education of Metropolitan New York, of which I am a current board member) and Doula. I am also Certified in both Pre/Postnatal Yoga and is a Certified MUTU® Systems Pro.

How I work with parents

I work with expecting parents to prepare mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically for the marathon of labor and to be able to release for birth ahead of time. I offer private and group training sessions and workshops. I help families adjust to the emotional, physical and psychological demands of parenthood. I specialize in postpartum recovery, helping moms heal their pelvic floor and core.
