Supporting You

At Home, in Hospital, or at a Birth Center

At hospital, a birthing center, or in a home birth, I support your decision and will meet you where you are.


The postpartum period is a sacred time.  I am here to support you on this part of your parenting journey.


Loss and a termination decision is painful. Having a doula by your side for support can help.

Since 1998, I have been supporting families as a certified Full-Spectrum doula. Originally from Florence, Oregon, I serve families across Lane County – Eugene, Springfield, Deadwood, Mapleton, Swisshome, Walton, Veneta, and neighboring coastal cities including Coos Bay, Reedsport, and Yachats.

I regularly support births at Our Community Birth Center, Oregon Birth and Wellness, McKenzie Willammette, Bay Area Hospital in Coos Bay, and Home births to meet you where you are.

I accept Oregon Health Plan (OHP).

I am happy to nourish all families regardless of their gender, sexuality, skin color, family culture or caregiver dynamics.

I'm here to support you where you are.


I am currently offering families support via telehealth for visits and birth support in an effort to reduce possible exposure to illness for you and your newborn. I want you to feel safe and comfortable as we work together.
