“I believe that this world is filled with both chaos and wonder, and as people we an use this to evolve society towards our vision for the future. Pregnancy, birth and parenthood are one of this earth’s greatest intersections of chaos and wonder.”
As a birth and bereavement doula, I provide support for birth through every trimester. This includes those who are experiencing birth, those enduring bereavement, or those facing any event where birth and bereavement may meet.
In my role as your doula, consider me a person who floats around your birth process. Not an active participant, but someone learning about your wants and needs and then working with your support team to meet these. My role is to lessen any burden for birthing parents and partners by staying in tune with your desire for resources, support, and comfort measures.
As a birth and bereavement doula, a birth package is tailored to your specific wants and needs. In some cases this includes immediate support and resources. In other cases, it’s a package that includes several visits and services over time. The services I can provide as your doula include:
– Attending and supporting a birth in any trimester, and in any outcome
– Providing pre-natal support
– Providing post partum support
– Connecting to community resources
Additional Love and Devotion
I am available to answer questions and provide resources throughout your pregnancy and as needed. I am also connected with other doulas who may have additional services to meet your needs.
I am working towards incorporating a birth chart reading component to my birth services which would include chart readings for individuals, partners, or families. More to come on this soon!
I primarily serve folks in southern Maine (Eliot, Kittery, York), the Seacoast of New Hampshire (Portsmouth, Hampton, Dover), and eastern Massachusetts. This is simply for ease of access. Ideally, I service folks within a 1 hour drive of my home in southern Maine.
Birth can be an unexpected process and delivery does not always happen as planned. I am committed and available to support all types of birth and birth outcomes through every trimester of pregnancy.
In the event that I am unable to attend a birth such as due to inclement weather, a delivery earlier than expected, etc. I will be in contact with other local doulas to step in and provide support. I will also provide dates that I am unavailable well in advance and will only commit to doula services if I am readily available.

Kelly wrote, ‘In a world of chaos and wonder we must evolve’. That has never been more true for me. Thank you Kelly for helping me evolve.” – Kara in Salem, MA
