I am a Certified Doula (2010) through Nia Healing Center for Birth and Family Life with ICTC (International Center for Traditional Childbearing) trainer, Samsarah Morgan. I volunteered as a doula with Bay Area Midwifery: A Community Wellness and Birth Center (formerly Sacred Birth Place) in Oakland, CA from 2010-2013 and completed a doula training program facilitated by the home birth midwives working there. I received my postpartum doula training through Sacred Window school of Ayurveda, based out of Taos, NM.
