About Brenda

Hello! I am a DONA Certified Birth Doula, Certified GentleBirth Educator, and mother of three. My expertise is in helping parents feel empowered and prepared for a positive and healthy birth, no matter their individual preferences or circumstances.


Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers--strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

— Barbara Katz Rothman




“My amazing birth experience all started with my first meeting with Brenda. Prior to even giving birth, her strong support provided me with the emotional & mental confidence needed leading up to the birth of my 2nd child.”
