I am an experienced Birth Doula certified by Doulas of North America CD(DONA) and have completed my training as a Post Partum Doula.
I have additional training in breast feeding.
I teach childbirth education courses following a Centering model.
I have completed Lamaze and Bradley Childbirth Classes and attended childbirth classes at hospitals.
I live in Chicago and work in Chicago and the near suburbs.
I hold a masters degree in Child Development and have worked for many years as a teacher and therapist.
I have four grown children, two grandchildren, and a husband who is very tolerant of my odd working hours due to the fact that many labors begin at night.
I have a strong belief that every woman who wants a doula, should be able to have one. For this reason I work with each couple to have them determine what they can afford for doula care.
I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the possibility of becoming your doula.
