More about me

Welcome. I am a mother to two amazing girls, both birthed at home; a wife to an incredibly supportive partner. I am based in York, UK, and work as a birthkeeper and traditional postpartum doula; childbirth mentor; Reiki practitioner; Birth Story Listener; and Transformational Coach.

I moved to the UK in July 2021 to pursue midwifery studies after being a birth and postpartum doula for 12 years. Five months into my course, I decided that I could no longer continue studying and practising midwifery in a way that was so out of alignment with how I view the transformative journey of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I made the difficult but incredibly empowering decision to leave the course and embark on a very unconventional, yet incredibly authentic, path. I enroled in Indie Birth Midwifery School and started my studies to be a Birthing from Within mentor and Birth Story Medicine listener.

Through the years, my work as a birthkeeper has also integrated my studies in cultural birthing practices around the world, women’s nutrition, herbalism, flower essences, and ceremony and ritual for the childbearing year and other rites of passage. I am also completing trainings to become a Birthing from Within mentor, a Birth Story Medicine listener, and a Transformational Life Coach. 13 Moons is my passionate effort to bring together the transformative practices of yoga and meditation with supportive services for birthing people and women crossing the powerful thresholds of life.

As a holistic, trauma-informed, full-spectrum doula, I work with pregnant and birthing people from all backgrounds and life experiences, including LGBTQIA families, single mothers, and families who do not typically have access to perinatal support services. I am committed to ensuring all women and birthing people have access to a birth doula and breaking down the barriers that prevent women and birthing people from having the information and support they deserve as they make the courageous and profound journey into motherhood. I also have experience working with families who have experienced loss, birth trauma, and pregnancy release. 10% of all proceeds are put towards am accessibility fund to ensure support for all who desire and find the need for the nonjudgmental, compassionate, experienced presence of a doula.
