As a doula it is my honor to attend and support women and families in so many ways, beginning in pregnancy, through labor, and during the entire postpartum and breastfeeding journey.

Before and during labor I offer informational, emotional, and physical support, helping you to navigate the changes and choices of birth today. I bring many skills and tools to the birth, including massage, positioning, and comfort measures to support your labor.

Though placenta encapsulation, I can help mothers to weather the hormonal and emotional changes after birth in a more comfortable manner.

Breastfeeding can present many challenges and together we can discern and navigate them to a positive and fulfilling nursing relationship.

My doula support and lactation counseling enable every family to begin this new chapter of life in the light of Faith, knowing birth is designed by God to bring us closer to Him.


"I was so happy I chose Koko to be our doula! I was on the fence about needing one, but she really set my mind at ease and helped lessen any worry I had about birth. She encapsulated my placenta for me too. I felt much more comfortable having her be the one to do that than a big facility.  She really helped relieve any stress or anxiety I had when having my second child. I wish I had hired her the first time as well!" V.

"Koko was our doula for my VBAC in May 2021. She is simply amazing!!  From my first prenatal visit to my postpartum visit, she was exactly what our family needed. My birth threw us for a loop as labor came on so quickly that I didn't even make it to my planned hospital! Koko talked me through my early and active labor.  She kept me sane through the pushing and the rush of everything. She truly cares and wants the best birth experience for you."

"From our very first meeting Koko was kind, gentle, and informative.   She helped guide my husband to find ways to comfort me without him taking away from my focus. Her understanding of the joys and challenges of childbirth cannot be matched! Koko has an understanding of how amazing bringing a child into this world is; she can encompass that joy while also being honest, informative, and preparing you for the realities of this experience. " R.

"I was so blessed to have Koko as my doula. Her knowledge and experience were so helpful and I have no idea how we would've gotten through this as smoothly without her. She is so supportive and understanding and we prayed together when things got intense and I wanted to pray.  My labor was such a beautiful experience and having Koko made the world of a difference. She genuinely loves and cares for the mommas she works for! She is a blessing!" B.
