Training & Qualifications
Labor & Birth Doula Training - DONA International - February 2018
200YTT - Santosha Yoga Institute - January 2020
Labor & Birth Doula Certification - ProDoula - March 2022
I have been a trained doula since February 2018. I completed my training through DONA International while living in Japan and received my certification through ProDoula. Having lived on or near military bases my entire career (and being a military spouse myself), I have training and experience working with families whose support system is either deployed or not close to home.
In early 2020, I completed my 200 hour YTT through Santosha Yoga Institute. I am proud to have volunteered with organizations like MOPS and Stroller Warriors, leading members in thoughtfully designed yoga practices.
I am passionate about integrating yoga with birth work, helping you (and your partner) learn to trust your body and instincts. I believe this is a valuable skill that will serve you well during your pregnancy, labor, and delivery and into your parenting adventure.
