People often talk about how joyful it is to have a new baby. “It’s such a gift!” “You should be so happy!” “Smile!” A big piece of my work is approaching parenting with a both/and mindset. You can love and be happy about your new baby while also struggling and feeling sad.

I am lucky enough to do a job that brings me great joy. It is challenging at times, but the bonds I create with new families make me so happy. I love supporting folks at this beginning time and helping them enter this next stage of life.

I have September openings for postpartum doula work and am also offering both my first and second time parent support groups. I bring a balanced approach to supporting new parents. And also, I will make you laugh.
