Birth and Postpartum Doula

Nurturing support for one of the biggest moments of your life.

COVID-19 Statement: I am offering in person services during this time. Clients must be taking safety precautions, as I do as well.

Birth Services: At this time I am no longer accepting clients for birth support. You are still welcome and encouraged to take my Childbirth Education series, and we can match with a birth doula through my doula agency, Memphis Doulas. While I cannot make myself available to the on-call and unpredictable nature of birth at this time, I would love to support your pregnancy through education or bodywork. If you are interested in somatic bodywork/scar tissue remediation, please see this page.

My postpartum practice is still offering full service support to first time and experienced parents. My calendar for postpartum support fills extremely quickly, so please reach out as soon as you can. If I am not available, or have limited availability, we can match you with another doula at the agency. I am always happy to do a few special sessions with clients who want to work with me specifically but need more hours than I have available, or need night work, which I am presently not offering. See bottom of page for packages and pricing.
