Now Accepting Postpartum Doula Clients! 

COVID-19 Policy

As a doula I am doing my part to socially distance because the safety of my clients and my household is of the utmost importance to me.  I trust my clients to share if they have any symptoms or have been in a large group setting where they could not socially distance.

Who Am I?

I provide warm, calm support to families when they need it most during pregnancy, birth and early postpartum. As a prenatal yoga instructor,

birth doula and certified lactation counselor my passion is supporting families throughout pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood.  I can frequently be found talking about pelvises, looking at birth photos, reading about birth or listening to birth podcasts. I believe that pregnancy, birth and nursing are powerful experiences unique to each family.

I am honored to be a part of Manhattan Birth's Year-long doula mentoring program, and look forward to sharing all I learn with my clients.

I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest but for the past 20+ years I've made my home in Westchester County, New York.  I love family, home, laughing, babies, bees, whales, dogs, trees, frogs, reading, cooking, music and yoga.

Prenatal Yoga

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, I am currently offering FREE virtual prenatal yoga classes. Contact me for the link to join!  

Saturday 10:00-11:00 am


Through movement, breath work and meditation prenatal yoga helps create the strength, flexibility and stamina needed to prepare your body for labor and birth.  Prenatal yoga is for all stages of pregnancy, both pre and postnatal.  No previous yoga experience is necessary.

AI love feeling prepared for birth, and connecting with other soon-to-be mommas! I highly recommend this class to fellow pregos!!


Doula Services

Whether you choose to birth at home, birthing center or in the hospital, I provide warm, calm support before, during and after birth. I provide comfort measures, listen to your concerns and provide evidence based solutions to help you make the best decisions for you and your growing family.  

Doula Services Include:

  • Two prenatal meetings with you and your partner to discuss labor, your birth preferences, comfort measures and options.

  • Virtual, phone, email and text support during pregnancy and early labor for any questions you might have.

  • Continuous support from the time you need me at your home, birthing center or hospital, throughout labor birth and the immediate postpartum period.

  • One to two in-home postpartum meetings.

Special rates apply to virtual support and home births. Contact me to discuss how I can best support you and your growing family

Shelly provided a calming influence, as well as constant support. She was a great resource and made the entire experience of giving birth a lot less stressful. Her constant encouragement and pain management techniques were instrumental.
