Yes! Doulas (doo-lis) really is my given last name.


During the birth of my first child, I discovered an interest in and a love for the awesome time of life known as the childbearing year, along with an appreciation for the unique support that families need during this time. This grew into a desire to serve new and growing families as a doula, lending them my knowledge and support during the transformative events of pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum weeks and months.


Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I love spending time outdoors; from reading a book on my deck to hiking in the alpine wilderness. I am mother to two teenagers, and enjoy raising a larger blended family with my wonderful partner.


To my work I bring years of personal experience with baby wearing, attachment parenting, and extended nursing.

Welina mai kakou!  I grew up in Hawaii with a large extended family and was always surrounded by babies. Being one of the middle cousins I was regularly put in charge of taking care of the younger ones and that is where my passion for families and babies began. As I got older I was frequently called to help out during the postpartum time and give the new parents some rest.


It wasn’t until I moved to Seattle that I heard about doulas and I finally felt like I had found my calling; this role that I had already been playing with my friends and family finally had a name.


As a birth and postpartum doula I aim to provide care that is evidence based, spiritually grounded, and inclusive of all walks of life.

Since childhood, I have been fascinated by birth and babies. In college, I learned about doulas, midwives, and childbirth educators, and knew holistic support across the childbearing period was needed individually and societally. While my oldest was a baby, I was an advocate for midwifery and doula support, and then after my second baby, I knew the time was right to begin offering doula services to my community.

After moving to the Pacific Northwest pregnant with my first child, my spouse and I have loved discovering the beauty that Washington has to offer. As a family, we enjoy hiking, tide-pooling, volunteering in our community and biking along regional trails around our city. A dancer from birth, I'm pleased to incorporate Dancing for Birth into my prenatal visits and during labor with clients.

To my work, I bring years of personal experience with breastfeeding, babywearing, attachment parenting, elimination communication and midwifery studies.
