Sunbeam Childbirth Services
I am a childbirth doula based in Bothell/Mill Creek and serving the North Seattle and Everett areas. I have six beautiful children and a husband whom I adore spending time with. I grew up in the Puget Sound area and am excited to be raising my children here as well!
I became a doula after attending the labor of a dear friend and realizing how beneficial having a knowledgeable support person can be for both parents during the childbirth experience. I was excited to have the opportunity to be trained by Penny Simkin and Carrie Kenner, through DONA, at Bastyr University in 2012.
Since then I have continued my education, completing B.R.A.S. (Breastfeeding Resources and Skills for Doulas) and Rebozo workshops, also with Carrie Kenner, at Big Belly Services.
I have experience both giving birth and attending births in multiple birth settings, including hospital, birth center, and home. I know each family chooses the right setting for their own situation, and I love that we have so many options here in the Seattle area!
My services include two prenatal visits, 1-2 postpartum visits, and continuous emotional and physical support during labor and birth. I am available to you by phone, email, and text 24/7 from the time the contract is signed.
I also offer a complimentary consultation for a relaxed, no pressure opportunity for us to become acquainted.
I look forward to working with you as you prepare for your birth!
