About

My name is Marcy, and I’m a birth doula, placenta 248192_648831711809838_1209511535_nencapsulator, childbirth educator, yoga teacher, reiki practitioner, and midwifery student. As a birth professional, my goal is to help every family to have the best possible birth and postpartum experience. The care I give is personalized to fit each family’s individual needs, and takes into account their own unique vision of the ideal birth. I am happy to provide compassionate, non-judgmental, evidence-based support as I serve families across the full spectrum of birth choices and outcomes.

I graduated with a B.A. in Anthropology in 2009, and since then I’ve devoted the past 5 years of my life to the path of birthwork. In addition to my continuing formal education in the fields of nursing and midwfiery, I’ve taken multiple trainings, workshops, and seminars to enhance my knowledge and skills. I’m currently a midwifery student at Via Vita Midwifery Foundation, with the goal of becoming a CPM (Certified Professional Midwife.) Working with growing families is my passion and true calling in life, and has been more rewarding and fulfilling than I could have imagined.
