Growing up, Megan always had a special interest in babies and newborns.
She became especially fascinated with birth and the mother-infant relationship while completing a research project on kangaroo care and skin-to-skin contact in a college physiology class.
This led her on an educational journey through the Human Biology degree at Scripps College, eventually writing her senior thesis on the effects of hospital practices during birth and breastfeeding outcomes postpartum.
This was the turning point for Megan. She realized that she wanted to dedicate her life to supporting and helping women through their birth giving and postpartum time. So she decided to take training to become a birth and postpartum doula. These trainings were truly immersive, and have equipped her with all the tools needed to help you through your postpartum days.
Still, she is never complacent with her education. She loves learning about new innovations that give you a magical and rewarding postpartum experience. She is even working on applications for nurse-midwifery programs so that she can go beyond offering standard care—and instead provide you and other women with the RIGHT care. It’s her firm belief that every woman should be well-supported and empowered to make informed choices during birth.
In her free time Megan enjoys being outdoors, biking, hiking, skiing and camping. She also loves photography and incorporates it in her doula work.
