I am fortunate to have entered this world through the tranquil and supportive environment of a home birth ( my Mother was assisted by a midwife). I truly believe that this undisturbed birth of love, trust, and surrender has completely reinforced my soul's freedom of expression. At my core, I feel fully nourished and committed to serve others. This innate devotion to offer support has manifested through my career as a yoga teacher for the last four years. Turning 30 this year, inner guidance lead me to honor and understand my own divine feminine energy. I have been obsessively studying the sacredness of the female cycle and digging deep into a place of womanhood and assertiveness within. This profound respect for women's power brought me to an infatuation with childbirth!
I completed a DONA International Certified Doula Workshop (plus Childbirth Education class) in early November, 2017. I live in the Pahoa area on the Hilo side of the Big Island (I have a vehicle and am open to traveling around the island to offer birth support). My first experience as a Doula took place recently at the Hilo Medical Center. I am more driven than ever to connect with fellow birth workers and keep immersing myself in the world of healing, support, & empowerment in womanhood, pregnancy, labor, and postpartum.
As a new Doula, I am seeking as much hands-on experience as possible and am offering my services at a discounted rate. Please contact me for details.
I am available for births at home, in the hospital, and at birth centers.
