I happily offer doula & birth education services to families:
of any parental configuration,
who have singleton babies or multiples,
with babies who have special needs,
who come together through adoption,
who give birth in a hospital, birth center, or at home.
I serve all of Dutchess County as well as various regions of
Fairfield& Litchfield counties in CT  
and Orange, Westchester & Putnam counties in NY.

I welcome clients of any race, culture, or religion, marital or financial status, sexual orientation or gender identity. We’re all in this together.


A bit about me: I can naturally connect to most humans - tiny or large - in a calm, patient, empathetic, nurturing way, with a dash of humor as needed.  I feel honored to be a transitory part of people’s lives during BIG times. Credentials: I am a DONA certified Birth & Post-Partum Doula, a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, and a member of the Hudson Valley Birth Network.


I have three children (13, 11 and 7) and a hubby, Jon, who teaches science. Plus, Penny & Hoover, my beloved Chocolate Labs, and their sisters, Beatrix & Daisy, our crazy cats. And a horse named Aria. And a few chickens. (I like babies and animals. Clearly.)

When not meeting tiny new humans or spending time with my crew, I enjoy traveling the world, hiking in our woods, hosting guests and parties, cooking, and coaching field hockey and lacrosse.
