As a Doula, Master Healer and Coach, I Help Aspiring, Creative & Spirit-led Women in the Birth Continuum to Birth Your Ultimate Power as a Woman in your Motherhood Journey™
I’ve lost everything, met death and grief and depression more than once in my life. As a mother of two, birth and postpartum doula, I meet my clients where they are, giving them the presence, empathy and belief they need to empower themselves through ANYTHING.
If you’re looking for a doula who will simply time contractions and talk medical, don’t call me.
If you want a woman who’s survived trauma, PTSD, Hyperemesis Gravidarum, Gestational Diabetes, Postpartum Anxiety and Postpartum Depression and come out the other end embodied, trusting the Universe, and deeply on-mission, and who will SEE you and LOVE you into your own power…I’m your gal.
I have been a student of yoga, meditation and the Baha’i Faith for over 25 years, and integrate all my offerings with Spiritual Counseling. Having survived sexual assault, family alcoholism and addiction, sudden tragic loss due to suicide, divorce and bankruptcy, I integrate learnings from my history into my Spiritual Counseling Sessions within my Boutique birth & postpartum packages to assist birthing women to peacefully & powerfully navigate the massive identity transformation that is underway in her Soul during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
If these words are resonating with you, Welcome. I am so happy you found your way here because a powerful opportunity is before you…
My deepest hope is to activate you into your ultimate power as a woman in your birth year — probably the most raw, intense, ripe-with-magic year of your life.
I don’t want you to get lost when you give birth and become a mother.
After all, as an aspiring woman who has been creating a life on her terms already…why would you even stand for that?
Because you’re here my guess is that you want your entrance into motherhood to be a reflection of your soulfulness, your creativity, your femininity and your power. Just like how you birthed your life pre-baby…
And it is my unique sacred genius to help you do JUST THAT.
Here’s what I know: as an ambitious & soulful woman, being pregnant is a Shero’s journey, where you get to find out what you REALLY want for yourself, for your life, for your career, for your baby, for your partnership and CREATE it.
What would you do and how would you invest your time, energy and money if you knew that:
Your birth experience could uncover a well of hidden power you’ve been longing to access
Motherhood activates millenia of cellular patterning of female disempowerment UNLESS you use a conscious method to move that out of your body
Birthing YOURSELF as a woman will take you to your next level of life, love and wealth, if you have an expert advocate by your side in your birth year
Women just like YOU are being called to something much higher in their birth year, and it’s time to take your place amongst the business women leading empowered motherhood
Your baby will benefit MORE from you embodying your highest level in pregnancy, birth and postpartum than you could possibly imagine (empowerment will literally be plugged into your baby’s basic brain programming)
I am PASSIONATE about helping ambitious, creative women like you to use your birth YEAR as the VEHICLE for the activation and birth of your ultimate power as a woman. From personal experience, I KNOW exactly kind of preparation is necessary for you to do just that. I currently take a few families per year into my Birth Year and Spiritual Counseling practice to assist from preconception, early pregnancy, birth, postpartum and beyond postpartum. I’d LOVE to meet you if you’re this kind of woman, and will settle for nothing less than a transformational birth experience and entrance into new motherhood. Click here.
There are three stages in the motherhood journey that my clients meet me at...which one are you on, Beautiful, and how can I help you?
birth yourself into being
Beautiful Woman! Here’s what I need you to know:
You CAN make decisions for your birth from an empowered place that speaks to your soul, just like you do as a business woman.
You DON'T have to lose control of your birth OR your life OR your business success.
You DON'T have to lose yourself in motherhood.
You CAN become a powerful matriarch and LOVE the woman you become through motherhood, and shed your newfound wisdom on your company, your clients and so much more…
I take a stand for your birth to be a demarcation, a ritual and beautiful initiation of your power, your beauty and your ultimate role in life as a feminine leader (in your family, your business/profession and in your circles).
How can you do this? As a master healer, master coach, founder of Empowered Birth Year, creator of the Illumined Birth Technique, empowered BadAssMotherBirther to two incredible daughters, 6-figure business woman running two, successful and soulful businesses AND as a trained birth and postpartum doula, I ACTIVATE you into your power and transmit to you an incredible wheelhouse of knowledge, wisdom, intuition and experience.
you are the power you seek
My unique genius is that my very presence in your life as your Doula, Healer, Spiritual Counselor and Movement Therapist AWAKENS your ultimate power and the embodiment of your TRUTH during your birth.
I know that you can do SO much on your own and are used to being miles ahead of everyone around you at all times. AND I need to tell you: your birth year is a time for RECEIVING and filling up your deep wells.
My presence in your birth year is the VOICE of sisterhood, mentorship, witnessing and empowerment that you want beside you when it really counts.
I don't want it to be: 'I WISH I had had that voice of empowerment beside me' after you're ALREADY thrown into the disorienting newness of early postpartum and trying to deal with/heal from/make sense of what happened to you during your birth without a powerful advocate and guide beside you...
"As an illumined Birth MENTOR I will activate you into empowerment. I will witness you. I will help you embody your truth in birth and beyond."
In my Empowered Birth System, you will:
Train with me in my Illumined Birth Technique to re-pattern your cells, heal the mother wound and ancestral and personal trauma, birth karma, and make way for optimal positioning, dilation and pushing to shorten and ease your labor and delivery.
Move out your core sabotage pattern that shows up at your most important uplevels in life (and birth is the ULTIMATE uplevel, it literally DREDGES UP sabotage patterns unless you do this conscious piece of work around it) so you can move gracefully through to an empowered result.
Receive a TRANSMISSION of the energy of empowered birth from me: I hold the frequency of empowered birth through two incredible, graceful, potent, powerful and pleasurable births that took 6 hours for the first and 1.5 hours for the second (even in hospital and with my unfavorable diagnoses of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, Gestational Diabetes and Group B Strep)
Support your baby through supporting yourself with my presence in your birth year! The evidence from the study of Epigenetics says that your emotional/psychological/physical well-being has a genetic imprint on your baby while she or he is still in utero, and the way your baby is birthed affects their path in life forever! Let’s make it amazing!!!
Turn your birth into an alchemical container for the birth of your highest level, your ultimate power as a woman, so you prosper in ALL departments of life through the activation of your birth year experience.

"Why isn't just my midwife team enough?"
Let me explain why: midwives are watching over the medical aspect of your birth, VERY few are trained or even willing to address the spiritual, emotional component of birth, which is where I come in with the Illumined Birth Technique, my training as a doula and my own experience of being at the sacred threshold of my own births twice.
Can I tell you something? I hired 6 doulas for my second birth year. (to be clear: I had a Birth/Pre-natal Massage Doula, Doula-Photographer, Wise-woman Friend Doula, Postpartum Chef Doula/IBCLC, House-cleaning Angel, and a Postpartum Ceremony/Ritual Doula. Each woman was appointed a special task to bring us as a family forward into our own well-being and empowerment. I will always look back on those financial investments as the BEST MONEY EVER INVESTED. I literally thrived on a level of joy, pleasure, confidence, assurance, and physical well-being that I know now is REQUIRED in postpartum for us after we give our bodies to the process of bringing ANOTHER PERSON into the world).
"Why? Isn't that too much/unnecessary?"
After my first birth experience (for which I had an amazing birth mentor during pregnancy and birth), I realized how MUCH support is needed during the WHOLE birth year AND how much more focus I wanted placed on ME and WHO I was becoming, and not JUST the birth of a baby (don't get me wrong: receiving my babies from my own body into my arms remains two of the most profound and pleasurable moments of my entire life. But there is SO MUCH MORE to becoming a mother than just having a baby, and no one INITIATED me into that, and I found I deeply longed for that after my first baby was in my arms!)
Unfortunately, no one shared with me how much love, attention, healing and support I would need in my postpartum EVEN WITH an empowered birth experience!! For my second birth, I hired a very robust team, 6 doulas who each specialized in their unique area to curate for myself the kind of package and birth experience I knew I wanted and needed: TOTAL CARE + an all-out feminine celebration of my womanhood and my journey into matriarch-hood as a mother of two.
It is through THAT experience of knowing JUST HOW POTENT it was to bring together a magical team that fulfilled my longing for a creative, feminine, spiritually potent and empowering birth year that I created my Empowered Birth Year ™ Packages for my own badass-business-women-birthing clients. These packages are designed to fulfill that soul-level longing that I know YOU have for a total empowerment experience, one that addresses your needs on the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical levels of the birth of you as a woman and mother and the birth of your beautiful new baby.
I want YOU to have not JUST an intervention-free, empowered and spiritually resonant birth, but the EXPERIENCE of profound couple connection between you and your partner, and a nourishing, flourishing postpartum that BIRTHS you into your new role as a mother, woman and matriarch who KNOWS who she is, what she stands for, and has ACTIVATED a clear path for herself to enjoy motherhood COMPLETELY , while sustaining your successful and soulful business or career.
You will step into postpartum with a gleam in your eye and excitement to meet the day, even while sleep deprived. And THAT'S saying something.
If this CALLS you, you're invited to apply to chat with me over the phone about my Empowered Birth packages and which one might be right for you.
Here’s what I need you to know: deep inside of every woman is a WELL of untapped power that is YOURS FOR THE HAVING, and BIRTH and becoming a mother is LITERALLY designed to help you ACCESS it.
This birth power will inform you intuitively, it will give you SUPERPOWERS you can use in your business, in your career, in your leadership, in your insight and vision, in your magnetism, my God does it AWAKEN all that you hoped to transmit in your work to the world, which in turn: CALLS IN WEALTH.
