About the Provider

I come with a passion to serve each family, believing that each should have access to support and resources in a place where many in NYC are distant from their families and dear friends. After the positive natural birth of my daughter, with a doula and my partner by her side.I channeled my energy in a new direction in 2014, by becoming a certified birth and postpartum doula and certified lactation counselor. Shortly after I also became a childbirth educator and doula educator/mentor for my certifying organization Doula Trainings International. I am also involved in many community parenting support groups such as La Leche League and Chocolate Milk Cafe as a leader and Mocha Moms, Brooklyn chapter. This passion fueled me to mentor others who hold space in birthwork, especially black and brown communities. After my 2nd was born at home with a supportive birth team, I further realized how important a trusted, skilled care provider and support team was and made a difference. I struggled with breastfeeding for the first 2 months with my second child, which was a drastically different experience from with her first. Despite feeling discouraged, I called on my community for support and advice. I quickly realized how each journey can be so different, as is each family. I respect and honor all journeys into parenting and bring education and non-judgmental care to the families which I support. I am CPR and First Aid certified and always attending continuing education opportunities to further her education and support her families to the best of her ability. I have worked with families in different scopes from the Women, Infant and Children Program (WIC) as a breastfeeding peer counselor, where their goal is to increase nutritional and breastfeeding awareness in communities, to working with families of the foster care system, shelters, of the LGBTQ community, with special needs, premature births and parents of multiples. I have a BA in psychology, was a birth doula with the Brooklyn Department of Health By My Side Doula Support Program and currently work as a hospital doula and lactation counselor. I am a Brooklyn based mom and when not supporting families, I am building memories with my own.
