Ayurvedic Postparum Doula, C-IAYT Yoga Therapist, and Licensed Massage Therapist.  Soma Doula’s purpose is to give you that much needed time and support throughout the important transition in your life and ready yourself for the new road ahead.  Using the tools and wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga, I provide holistic meals, Mother/Infant body treatments and support around the home to nourish you, whole body, mind and heart.  Because when you have the time to rest and recover during times of change, you can more clearly see the way ahead.

In addition to at-home support, I advocate for the Mother through a series of online postpartum coaching programs.  Each session includes a subject focus, with follow up online meetings through each module, until confidence and team support (friends and family) are prepared for baby’s arrival, as well as time after.  

There are free discovery sessions to uncover how to best support you.

I travel to various destinations (near and far) to support families, from the liminal 6-week  postpartum space, through the first year(s) of motherhood.
