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

I have assisted expecting families in the New York Metro area since 2003 and I am passionate about preparing and empowering women to strengthen body and mind for birth and postpartum.

I want to help my clients have an optimal, functional and positive birth experience. I also want to give the mother the tools and resources to help herself.

I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING YOU FIND YOUR STEADINESS, STRENGTH AND HEALTH!
