Meet Your Instructors
As a doula I am committed to helping moms-to-be experience the birth they envision. I am excited to share with you the tools I use, whether mom expresses a desire for meditation or medication.
After volunteering for two years in the Labor and Delivery Department at Cedars-Sinai, I understand hospital policies and work within them to advocate for a delivery that aligns with the desires of mom-to-be.
Yoga is another important tool I use to help moms achieve their birthing and postpartum goals. I am a Certified Ma Yoga® /RPYT Instructor, and have additional certifications in breath work, pre/postnatal nutrition, hypnobirthing and lactation.
As a postpartum doula I also help moms with successful breastfeeding, connective bonding with baby, and management of daily life in this new and challenging phase. All of the postpartum benefits will also be infused with support in self care.
Nurturing self-care is at the core of Ma Yoga Living.
It is an honor to be sharing the Ma birth journey with you.
