About

Welcome.

I hope you find this site to provide useful and clarifying information on your journey. As a full spectrum doula, I provide services for childbirth and the peripartum year, abortion, miscarriage, and surgeries related to reproduction.

Artemis is the Greek goddess of wildness, childbirth and virginity. Pennyroyal (mentha pulegium), a traditional folk remedy and the most commonly known abortifacient herb. These two powerful symbols of female-bodied and cultural wisdom represent the “full spectrum” of a health and advocacy relating to reproductive wellness – realms where I serve.

The scope and capacity in which I serve are listed in more detail on my site, so I welcome and encourage you to explore. My intention is to provide consistent, meaningful and clear support – in the form of holistic services, resources, and information about health care practitioners and providers – so that you can make the most fully informed decisions during a time of meaningful and profound change.
