Holistic midwifery care from preconception through the postpartum.


Welcome! I provide home birth midwifery and childbirth doula services as well as holistic gynecological care in Boston through southeastern New Hampshire, supporting a broad range of reproductive health needs. 

Baraka is an Arabic word meaning blessing (berakhah in Hebrew), a warm and powerful essence that can linger in a place, a person, or an experience. We learn and grow through all of our fertility experiences, whether they be challenging or rewarding (and usually a mix of both). I believe that all people deserve compassionate, personalized, and professional care across the spectrum of fertility, pregnancy, loss, and wellness needs. 



I offer a range of services including full midwifery care through 6 weeks postpartum, doula/monitrice support, miscarriage support, childbirth education, annual wellness visits, herbal consultations, and more.

Why Home Birth?

The number of American families choosing home birth is rising. People appreciate the personalized, continuous, low-intervention holistic care, but there are all sorts of reasons why someone might choose an out of hospital birth.

What's a Doula? A Monitrice?

As a monitrice, my primary role is to provide labor support, but I also use midwifery skills to support you to labor at home for as long as possible before leaving for the hospital.
