Birth, postpartum, and postoperative doula

Washington, DC

I am a DONA certified doula in Washington, DC. I am passionate about trauma-informed care and patient advocacy. I created Rainbow Doula DC because I know that not all birthing persons connect to pregnancy language that is typically found throughout the birth experience; I wanted to focus on creating a culture of respect to foster the best birth experience possible for every birthing person.

Birth doula

Washington, DC

From teaching abroad to teaching in Washington, D.C., my life's work is to unlock the magic in everyone. I am a newly trained birth doula (Mama Glow, 2019) and eager to embark on this journey of supporting all birthing people. Birth can be a spiritual journey for many, and it is essential to have a space where you can simply be. Whether you're welcoming in your rainbow baby or on your third, I am grateful to be part of your journey.

Full-spectrum birth doula

Mt. Rainer, MD & Washington, DC

I'm a DONA certified full-spectrum Doula. Since a young age I have been in awe of birth, I am amazed by the power of our bodies and moved by seeing families and communities come together to support a birthing person. I recently shifted my work to provide emotional, physical, and radical support for folks giving birth. I create space for birthing folks to consider what they want for their birth and help educate and prepare them for what is possible. I support birthing people on whatever journey they choose, help advocate for their wishes, and maintain their autonomy with informed consent and trauma-informed care.
