I am a DONA certified Labor Doula, certified Lactation Counselor, Lamaze childbirth educator and Licensed Social Worker. I have been supporting families in birth since 2013. I have experience supporting families in a wide range of births including unmedicated, medicated, high risk, multiples, breech presentation, VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) and planned cesarean. I support families delivering in hospitals, birth centers and at home throughout NYC. I also specialize in body positivity, eating disorders and Health At Every Size doula care.
In 2009 I graduated from Kenyon College with a B.A. in Gender Studies. During that time, I became passionate about women's health and childbirth. I then returned to my hometown, NYC, where I obtained my masters at NYU Silver School of Social Work. I began working as a doula shortly after. I write about body size and pregnancy as well as offer workshops for birth workers and pregnant folks that focus on cultivating body positive and weight-neutral tools to navigate pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. I am currently pursuing graduate studies in Anthropology at The New School for Social Research.
