In becoming a doula , I realized quickly it was my mission in life to help new parents through this time. It is a calling in the deepest part of me. I originally am from Russia. I speak Russian and English. Our culture there is to believe in a woman’s natural power to give birth. Imagine my surprise when I found out that here in the United States women are taught so differently. I want to help women understand that they have the right to choose from many options and guide them to find their own strength where it lies. WE are powerful.

As a mother, I know what a woman feels like when she is pregnant. I know the feeling of anxiety and fear, feeling vulnerable for the life of a new baby. I know the concerns about how it will change a family dynamic, worries about being a good mother and the desire to want to do every-thing right. I know the fear of not knowing everything and wondering how I will ever learn it all. I want to be able to support parents through such times so they know they are not alone. I have ventured into many parts of birth work. From being a labor doula, to teaching childbirth classes and helping new mothers learn how to breastfeed. I take my work very seriously and strive to continue my education and experience to help parents welcome their babies.

My training & experience

I studied with the largest international birth professional organization. CAPPA (Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association) in the USA. I am also a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor and Childbirth Educator.

I am deeply involved in my work and believe that there are no limits in self-education. I do not only take a wide variety of birth professional workshops to continue making sure I stay current with information, I also read recent books, watch videos, keep up with what is in the news, and read new research as often as I can. It is important to me that I give the best information to my students and clients.

I have experience with:

  • Homebirth, birth centers and hospitals

  • Different types of births. Vaginal, cesarean, and vaginal after C-section (VBAC)

  • I am familiar with many unexpected situations in labor. I can help you work through some of the challenges that happen when we are not expecting them.

  • I have experience with parents who use hypnobirthing, and many different techniques of relaxation. From applying massage and counter pressure, to help coping with contractions and fear.

  • While you are going through labor, I can help you and your partner understand the processes of what is happening to reduce your fear and help you cope with your pain.
