Being a doula is amazing—and hard as hell.
When I became a doula back in 2012, I had no idea how much this work would change my life. It has been the greatest gift—and one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. As a new doula, I could have really used an honest, experienced doula mentor to talk to when I had questions or when things got weird. Because as much as birthwork is beautiful, it is also (like birth itself!) deeply and irrevocably transformative. And transformation isn’t always easy, pretty, or linear.
As a doula mentor, I help you on that path of transformation—so you can be the solid rock your clients need, holding space and supporting from your own solid foundation as a birthworker.
My doula mentor services are simple—no strings attached or long-term commitment. We can connect as much or as little as you want.
Why Should You Mentor With Me?
Eight years of experience as a doula, with attendance at a variety of births in all settings, including home, birth center, VBAC, planned Cesarean, family-centered Cesarean, medically-high risk, and more, including training in abortion, loss, lactation, postpartum
I’m a published writer with dozens of articles about pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding in national publications like ELLE, Parents, FitPregnancy, and more—so I know how to communicate effectively about birth and maternity care in our country today, be it with clients, community members, or care teams
I believe in community action and birth justice—and I follow through, as a cofounder and the volunteer co-coordinator of the UNM Volunteer Birth Companion Program at the University of New Mexico Hospital and the steering committee lead of the New Mexico Doula Association
I am deeply passionate about the present and future of the doula role and profession. I work to organize doulas, influence policy, and build a world where doulas are respected members of the maternity care team
