Barbara is a birth and postpartum doula with 22 years of experience supporting families, a degree in social work, and specialized training as a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor. She believes that birth and parenthood really does take a village and enjoys empowering parents in their roles through her calm and positive presence.
My own birth and mothering experiences greatly inspired me to become a doula. I realized first hand that it takes a village! I am passionate about helping birthing and postpartum families feel emotionally and physically supported so that they are able to navigate this transforming time in their lives with a little more comfort and ease.
I love providing nurturing guidance and compassionate care to parents during this profound time in their lives so that they may experience greater confidence and joy in their new roles, and with their newborn baby. It is a great honor to witness their transformation and growth.
I am excited that more families can receive evidence-based information and compassionate, nurturing guidance wherever they live and whenever they need it most.
