I live in South Minneapolis near Lake Nokomis with my wonderfully supportive husband, Erik (yep, we have the same name!) and our three beautiful and exuberant boys, Leif, Loki, and Nils.
I grew up in Minneapolis and graduated from South High School. I earned my BA from Webster University in St. Louis, MO.
I've been working as a doula for over eight years. I am now also a full time paramedic here in the twin cities, hence my limited doula availability.
I have been encapsulating placentas for seven years and have helped hundreds of families have a more comfortable and smooth transition in their postpartum time. While I've (mostly) moved on from working as a birth doula, I still love supporting families in their birthing time, and offering placenta encapsulation is a wonderful fit for me to continue in this field I love while pursuing some other passions.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you and supporting you on your birth journey!
