Founder, Architect, Doula (Doula x Design)
New York City, USA
I am DONA (Doulas of North America) trained, an ALPP Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) and educated in Spinning Babies® labor comfort and progress techniques. I am a Professional Member of Evidence Based Birth® and receive frequent continuing education on the best practices in the field. In addition, I am a member of the Metro Doula Group COVID Response Team, providing PPE kits to birthing people and communities in need in New York City.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Art History from the University of Vermont and a Master of Architecture from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, receiving several awards for design and research. I was Founding and Managing Principal at SHoP Architects for over 20 years.
Beyond my passion for birth and design, I enjoy my lifelong engagement in dance and photography. I live in Manhattan with my two daughters and spend as much time as I can with my family in Maine. Photograph by Jami Saunders
