Amanda’s deep appreciation for the power of pregnancy and birth, combined with a desire to advocate for client centered and informed reproductive practices, drew her to pursue her path as a doula. She is a full spectrum labor & postpartum doula trained through Ancient Song Doula Services and a certified lactation counselor, trained by Lea Rivera, IBCLC. Amanda credits her own mother - who spoke of her pregnancies as magical and filled with love - for nurturing her passion for birth from a young age. Whether you're loving pregnancy, really struggling with it, feeling something in between or all of it at once - Amanda is here to listen and support you!
Amanda came to birth work through years of experience supporting families as a social worker. Her passion for social and reproductive justice initially led her into a career in sexual health, adoption, grief support, and LGBTQ+ community work.
As a doula, Amanda utilizes emotional, informational, and physical support as well as active listening, calming patience, and laughter to build trusting relationships. She knows all birthing persons and their partner(s) deserve to feel affirmed, attuned to, and cared for. Her practice intentionally supports all bodies, all genders, and all sexualities.
A child of the northeast, Amanda made her way to Brooklyn six years ago. Outside of work, she loves to spend time playing in nature, singing and seeing live music, arts and crafting, and hanging with friends and family.
