Melanie fell in love with supporting women and their partners after her first doula training in 1998. With the guidance of open-hearted midwives, she developed her philosophy and skills in tending families during birth. Inspired by midwives, she quickly developed a passion for mentoring expectant parents. This passion was further solidified when she honed her craft by training with Birthing From Within™.

For over a decade she taught Birthing From Within™ group classes to parents and now includes this birth preparation not only as part of her doula care, but also in mentoring expectant women in Awakening Mothers Circles. These circles provide women a place to gather with other pregnant women to build connections with the local birth community, form life-long friendships and experience a deeply enriching offering for the childbearing year.

In addition to Birth Doula work and Awakening Mothers Circles, Melanie also offers Massage for the Childbearing Year, Postpartum Doula Care, Birth Story Healing Sessions as well as compassionate support for Miscarriage/Stillbirth and Abortion.

Melanie works in partnership with two other doulas who are individual providers of yoga & chiropractic for the childbearing year. She is constantly learning, integrating and being inspired by parents and colleagues and is delighted and grateful to offer her services and mentoring to Sonoma County expectant parents.

During her limited free time, Melanie loves to grow succulents and flowers, write, spend time near the ocean and in the forest and dive deeply into all life has to offer.
