Originally from South Africa, I studied yoga and after I became certified, I started teaching prenatal yoga in New York. After being invited by some of my students to attend their births, I became certified as both a doula and a childbirth educator.                                  

I was invited by my mentor, Erica Lyon, to teach both Childbirth Education, Newborn Basics and Parent/Baby Yoga at Realbirth, New York City’s first comprehensive childbirth education and postpartum center.

I have been assisting expecting families in the New York Metro area since 2003 and draw from my vast experience when teaching and assisting my clients.

I want to help my clients prepare and to strengthen body and mind for an optimal, functional and positive birth experience.

I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING YOU FIND YOUR STEADINESS, STRENGTH AND HEALTH for Birth + Postpartum!
