About

Professional Statement

Bekah is a devoted doula, language educator, and client ally with 10 years of experience serving immigrant and refugee families. Inspired to pursue birth work by her ESL students navigating pregnancy in a new country, she trained as a birth doula with the Simkin Center for Allied Birth Vocations at Bastyr University in June 2017. She is certified with DONA International and plans to incorporate full spectrum doula work into her practice. Bekah brings a calm, curious, non-judgmental tone to perinatal support and is committed to providing informative, unbiased care every step of the way. She embraces all birth plans and sees every birth as natural no matter the outcome or interventions decided on. Bekah is especially driven to support underrepresented communities and people who are recent arrivals to the United States and greater-Seattle area. She is a volunteer and doula with Open Arms Perinatal Services and loves being part of a network that strives to bring reproductive justice to the Northwest. When not working with clients or practicing labor support techniques on her friends, Bekah enjoys teaching elementary Spanish, doing yoga, playing card games, and eating delicious food. Rate: $1200
