Birth & Postpartum Doula Services
I have had the distinct honor of serving the women of Oahu, and their families, as a doula for the past nine years. I have been blessed with four children of my own & they are also an inspiration for my work.
The birth of a child is by far the most important experience a woman will have in her life. It sets the stage for her Life-Season of Motherhood, and is the tangible start of the relationship between Mother & Child.
I am a trained Birth & Postpartum Doula, Childbirth & Lactation Educator. Like the best things in life, I believe my pull to Birth was chosen for me. I foresee spending my lifetime helping women, families and the children they bring into the world.
Like everyone I have very definitive beliefs and truths. It is my security in my own beliefs, that gives me the confidence to work with families of varied backgrounds, religions, and philosophies. I also believe your Family and the Doula you chose must fit like lock and key! Working together in perfect precision!

This fee includes a non-refundable retainer fee and the balance, due two weeks prior to your expected due date (EDD). If your baby is born before this time, full payment is due within ten days after the baby’s birth. If an induction or cesarean is scheduled, payment is required before that date.
The full fee is due if I attend your birth regardless of length of labor. If my backup or I, should fail to attend your labor and birth due to either of our errors, a partial refund will be considered. Click here for full Birth Agreement.
