Welcome to SUNbirth Services!

I am a Certified Birth Doula who has been actively practicing in the Seattle area since 2001. My passion is to support families with individualized emotional care and continuity through a positive transition to parenthood. I love what I do! I have worked with over 600 families since I formed my company, and attend all types of births with all types of families at hospitals, birth centers and in homes.  In the perinatal community I served the doula profession through my organizational work on the Board of PALS Doulas for over 9 years.  I believe strongly in passing on this traditional skill and have worked alongside dozens of doulas as their mentor.  I make my support accessible to low-income families as a Birth Services Doula with Open Arms Perinatal Services.

Please have a look around and contact me for more information. Best wishes on your journey.

“R and I can’t tell you how much we’ve enjoyed working with you.  Your remarkable skills, patience, and flexibility provided tremendous value to us, and frankly, got us through one of the most challenging but rewarding experiences of our lives.  Through our experience with you, we’ve learned that a doula is a critical member of a woman’s support team.  A doula provides quiet leadership and guidance as well as a compassionate ear that empowers a new mother to make the best choices for herself, her baby and her family.  In short, a doula is the center- along with the mother- of an event that has an incredible ripple effect.  We feel so lucky to have gone through the looking glass with you!” D and RN, parents
