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.
