Metalsmith, birth worker, knitter and artist. This is where I get to talk about the reality and all that.
Also, I really love earrings. Big love. Big. If you hang around, you'll probably see a lot of them.

I’m a full spectrum doula when I’m not in the art studio. Below The Line Birth Services – doula support in Los Angeles. I specialize in compassionate and professional support of non-traditional families and schedules, artists, and folks who work in the entertainment and music industries. My practice is inclusive of traditional, LGBT, poly, surrogate parents, adoptive parents, birth parents, and single parents. Because the last thing you need during a major transition is judgment about your life choices.

When I did my Full Spectrum training with the LA Doula Project earlier this summer, we spent a portion of the second day looking at ways to support loss. Dr. Ivy Margulies of Angels Born Still came in to talk to us about doing bereavement work. It struck a chord and I knew I wanted to really go deep with this aspect of birth support work.
I’m starting the October session of StillBirthDay to learn more about working with families when pregnancy outcomes are not as planned or hoped for, and to support them when they suffer a loss.
This is hard material but I think it’s something that every doula should be prepared for, in case a family needs that support. Or in the very least, have someone to call. They’re enrolling for the October session if you are a birth worker and looking at doing this work.
