Meet The Doula and IBCLC

Meet Your Doula and IBCLC

I'm a social worker by education. I've spent the last 14 years working with low-income families to empower and encourage sustainability and health literacy. I became interested in birth work when I began working on a project to reduce infant mortality. I realized that many families do not realize all of the decisions that they have to make before, during and after birth. And that they do, and should, have a say in all of these decisions. I want to help folks make informed choices that will enhance their birth experience and bring a healthy person into the world safely. 

 

I am super invested in helping folks secure their breast/chestfeeding relationship. Whether you are the birthing person, the adoptive parent, the non-gestational parent or just a supportive partner, we can talk about how to make your lactation journey successful. I successfully induced lactation for my first daughter as the non-gestational parent and am really excited to be able to share my lactation knowledge and journey with others.

 

Trainings: Certified Birth Doula (DONA), Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Certified Child Birth Educator, Child Passenger Safety Technician, Parents As Teachers Educator, Licensed Master Social Worker

 

I am also a radical, queer social justice warrior (and proud). 

 

I live in Missouri (but grew up in Kansas, Rock Chalk!). I've been married to my ever-supportive wife for 6 years and we have 2 children.
