A born nurturer, a child of touch, with a passion for life; Being a doula is a dance with nature, and I meet the mother in her unique rhythm to support her on the birthing journey. My story began on a goat farm in Israel, watching in awe the innate ability of a mother goat to labor, birth, and care for her young; so instinctual and so alive. I believe in the natural process of birth, the animal is all women, and I support through connecting emotionally and physically to the mothers process. I am trained in Esalen massage to bring relief and comfort through contact with the body, as well as the ancient practice of womb lifting to support the healing of the body post birth.
