certified doula

Hi! I’m Judy, a DONA certified doula.

I was trained as a birth doula with DONA (Doulas of North America) from Bastyr University in Seattle with The Penny Simkin Center for Birth Arts. I am offering both birth and postpartum doula services.

I have been involved in the birthing world intermittently for 40 years, starting with a midwifery study group in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The next birthing experiences were my own and I now have four grown daughters, all of whom were born at home.  Prior to becoming a doula, I also attended the births of friends, my grandchildren, and assisted at multiple births accompanying my midwife friends. I have experienced births both at home and in the hospital and am flexible and receptive in allowing your birthing experience to meet your unique desires and needs. After moving to the Northwest, I finally had the space in my life to follow my dreams of helping and supporting women in labor and mothering.
