I am a CAPPA certified Postpartum Doula, a trained Lactation Educator, an ICEA trained Birth Educator and an INNATE Postpartum Care- Certified Provider. I am on staff at the Birth Education Center in San Diego teaching Breastfeeding 101. My mission is to provide physical and emotional support to a new mother and her family. It is my passion to help new parents transition into parenthood in the privacy of their own home. I felt called to be a ‘mother-to-mothers’ later in life. With my degree from San Diego State University, I have spent the last 25 years in elementary education while raising my own family. It was the experience of being present at my first grandson’s birth that changed my career path. I have mentored friends and my own daughters along the exciting, sometimes scary journey of becoming mothers, and as I look back, I see that my path was always headed here, to birth work. I feel I was led to the to INNATE Postpartum Care training and feel honored to have received this sacred knowledge and to now share it with the women of Southern California. It is an exciting time to be involved in the empowering and renewing of the female body and to help women realize the physiological need to take responsibility for their own postpartum care.
