– Hoboken Doulas brings you
comfort & care through the entire journey

I am deeply honored by every family who invites me to share in their special moments. As your birth and postpartum doula, I will be a caring, supportive and a knowledgeable helper on your journey before, during, and after birth.  I recognize birth as a key life experience that parents will remember all of their lives. A doula provides emotional support, physical comfort measures, an objective viewpoint, and assistance to the woman in getting the information she needs to make informed decisions. A doula can also help facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and clinical care providers. I do not perceive my role as medical; rather, I perceive my role as one who nurtures the laboring mother with unconditional support.

I’m passionate about the welfare of new parents and their babies. I share my training and knowledge with the goal of facilitating the transition to parenthood by “mothering the mother.” I will help you recover from pregnancy and birth and focus your energy on bonding with your new baby and other siblings.

I believe families can benefit greatly from the help of a caring and supportive person at their side during the enormous life changes that occur in the childbearing year. I provide this with my doula care.

I serve Hoboken. Hudson County, Morris County, Bergen County, the Northern New Jersey Area, and New York City!

As a birth and postpartum doula as well as a childbirth educator, I believe that the birth process takes time and patience. My greatest wish is to support women no matter the situation and to provide professional yet intimate care to all of my clients so they can have the birth experience they desire. It is my pleasure to empower expectant mothers and walk with them through this process. I often remind my clients that they are stronger than they know.

I had a very long and exhausting labor, but I was extremely lucky to have an amazing support system that helped me get through it. Looking back, I couldn’t have done it without the help, love, and patience of those around me. I want to give all moms the same support that I received. It was my own experience with childbirth that gave me an understanding of how crucial informed support is for birthing parents.

I reside in Wyckoff, NJ in Bergen County with my husband and our two children Sarah (16) and Andrew (13). I enjoy spending time with my family whenever possible. I also love gardening, cooking, and running.

As your doula, I cannot wait to start this exciting and phenomenal journey with you!
