Bio
My life’s joy is to empower birthing people so that they may bring their children into the world with gentleness and compassion. I am a certified Birth Doula with Carriage House Birth and a trained DONA International Birth and Postpartum Doula. I am also a DTI certified Childbirth Education Instructor, and a senior beng-kung belly binding specialist with BelliBind here in Los Angeles. I witnessed my first birth at home in Bali, Indonesia. Even as a child of three years old, the raw and powerful energy was transformative. Out of that energy, my sister was born, and I was gifted a life-long companion. My innate gifts combined with my formal education and passion for birth guided me to become a doula. I wear many hats in this role: educator, assistant, and friend. It is my deep belief that in respecting birth and the transition into parenthood, we honor birthing people, their babies, and life itself. I am passionate about evolving my toolkit as a birth keeper and continue to expand my education in the field. My recent workshops include Spinning Babies with Gaily Tully, a deep dive into Aromatherapy for Birthkeepers with Nicola Goodall, Comforting Touch with Yiska Obadia, and Eat Pray Doula with Robin Lim and Debra Pascali-Bonaro in Bali. Most recently I studied with Comforting Touch for Doulas and Baby Massage with Yiska Obadia.
