Hi I'm Rose,


I have always marveled at the miracle of pregnancy and birth. My journey in supporting women becoming mothers began as a Birth Doula over 15 years ago. I am also a Registered Nurse at The Santa Rosa Birth Center, Postpartum Doula and Lactation Specialist. As a Humboldt County Doula I offer a grounded presence with the knowledge to help you make informed decisions regarding your birth  and postpartum experience so you can better advocate for yourself.

I love assisting and witnessing a Woman become more confidently embodied in her role as Mother. You are made to do this!

The Birth experience is one which you will probably remember forever. And the initial days of getting to know your new child is as well. These are the precious moments in life and I feel blessed to be a part of it.
