I’ve been a doula since 2000, and in that time I’ve been to many more than a hundred births. Each one is unique and joyful. I have been a certified doula through DONA international since 2001. I’m a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and I work with mothers postpartum who need help with breastfeeding. I’m a La Leche League Leader and I speak about birth and breastfeeding. I’m a gold-certified HypnoBirthing instructor.
I’m co-author of the book Doulas’ Guide to Birthing Your Way.
As for my personal life, I’m happily married to Chris Bailey, a writer, and have a son Simon born in 2001. (And of course I had a doula attend my birth.)
