Welcome to Baraka Birth! I provide training and support for pregnant mothers and their partners in HypnoBirthing, childbirth doula services, herbal consultations, and Fertility Awareness Method counseling based in Cambridge, MA.

The work that I do is about building strong, empowered, resilient women, families, and communities, with a belief that access to quality healthcare–including care that respects our diverse religious and cultural perspectives–is a universal human right.

Baraka is an Arabic word meaning blessing (berakhah in Hebrew), a sort of beneficent spiritual presence that can linger in a place, a person, or an experience. Pregnancy and birth–womanhood itself–motherhood, fatherhood, childhood, and life are rich with baraka, and so worthy of celebration, respect, and awe.
