Is a DONA certified doula. I believe that every birthing person deserves to have a positive and respectful birth experience that honors their unique needs and preferences. I also believe that neurodiversity is a natural and valuable part of human diversity, and doulas can play a key role in supporting neurodivergent families during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

I have supported many families with diverse backgrounds and needs. As a neurodiverse (Neuro Spicy) person myself, I have a unique perspective, which helps me to understand and respect the different ways that neurodivergent people communicate, process information, and express emotions. This is why I created Nuero Spicy Birth to make the birth world more equitable.

I offer online and in-person training courses that cover topics such as prenatal interview skills, birth preparation, and advocacy. My courses will help you to enhance your skills, knowledge, and confidence as a doula who works with neurodivergent families. You will also learn how to create a more inclusive and supportive doula community that celebrates neurodiversity.
