The founders of
Beautiful Beginnings birth and Postpartum doula referrals

​My passion for birth inspires me to help prepare new and expecting parents for the exciting journey ahead. This website will hopefully inspire you to learn more about how education can make a dramatic difference for your birth and parenting expectations, the importance of support and guidance, and also about training opportunities to become a doula or childbirth educator.  My mantras are: "Freedom of choice, based on knowledge of alternatives", as well as "The birth of a baby represents the birth of a family".  I am a co-founder and manager of Beautiful Beginnings Birth and Postpartum Doula Referrals: the longest running birth organization in San Diego.  

I am excited to announce that I am moving to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho this year and look forward to be a part of the birth community in our new home.
