My husband and I took HypnoBirthing with Cheryl and decided to hire her as our doula a few days before my due date. My wishes were to have a natural birth; however, nature intended different and I went in for an emergency induction. I worked every HypnoBirthing technique Cheryl taught but I was struggling bad. My husband called her and said its time she wants to get the epidural. Cheryl showed up in minutes and immediately began putting me in positions, using oils, breathing techniques, etc. She was the light I needed. Every time I wanted to break she was there to remind me I was strong enough. Although, my birth did not go according to plan; I was proud of myself by the time Freya entered the world. I wouldn’t have been able to do what I did without Cheryl, I truly believe that. She was there until the very end; helping me push, helping me breathe her down, helping my husband cope watching me in pain, advocating for me when I couldn’t speak, taking fantastic pictures, and being there for me when I thought I was going to loose my mind. Cheryl is priceless!
Dear Cheryl – You have been such a great support for us. Even though our plans were different than what we all thought, you have been there for us especially for Michael for so long after our babies birth. People should always know that Doulas are such a great support after birth and also when you have premature babies. Our decision to have you to support us even when we knew the outcome was going to be different, was the best decision ever. I’m so happy we are your first twin baby family. Can’t wait till you get to carry the boys and have your picture with them. We love you!
Cheryl was amazing from day one. We took a HypnoBirthing class with her and knew we wanted to have her be our doula as well. She was always there for us and was even close to delivering our baby since my midwife showed up right before my baby was born. I couldn’t have done it without her. I can’t thank her enough for letting me bite her hand in the middle of a contraction. For telling my husband to take my weight while I was hugging him. For squeezing my hips when it felt like my hips were going to explode. She is the best!! I would recommend her to everyone!

About me

Using nutrition, mindfulness, movement and body treatments, I work with those in their reproductive years. This has been my work for 2 decades running.

My foundation is yoga practice. Teaching group & private lessons as well as training those that want to do the same. OmBalance is a registered yoga school with Yoga Alliance.

From yoga, life allowed me to move from a creative career to life as a doula & childbirth educator. I'm studied in the states as well as in India for traditional Ayurvedic care for fertility, pregnancy, postpartum thru 6 months of newborn life.

My Philosophy of Care

Seems like my life organically evolved into this wellness way of living.

My Inspiration

Ayurvedic body treatments are used to create & maintain balance in the body. During pregnancy & specifically postpartum, body treatments help to sooth the nervous system, improve circulation & reduce inflammation.

“This was my second delivery with Cheryl & once again I don’t think I would have been able to execute my birth goals without her help. Her presence and the techniques she implements in the delivery room are extremely calming and beneficial.”
I met Cheryl for the first time while I was in labor, because my original doula was at another birth and wasn’t able to come. At first I was unsure about having a last minute “replacement”, but minutes after Cheryl’s arrival, I knew I was in very good hands. Cheryl has a very calm and peaceful energy about her and I felt like I could trust her right away. From my first contraction with Cheryl to the last, I felt her support and presence every step of the way. Whether it be hip squeezes, toilet knee to shoulder squeezes (that was awesome), essential oils on my ankles, heat pad on my lower back, warm water on my lower back, cold towels on my face (and changing them out when they aren’t cold anymore), or words of encouragement – nothing went unnoticed. Cheryl was one of the most pleasant surprises during this pregnancy and I feel so blessed to have her as part of my birth experience; so much so that I may want to consider another child so I can have this experience all over again, with Cheryl being the doula from the get go!
Going to Cheryl’s prenatal yoga classes was one of my favorite things about being pregnant. Not only does she know how to help you through aches and pains, she helps you strengthen yourself in preparation for childbirth and caring for a little one. Perhaps most importantly, a class with Cheryl always leaves you feeling happy and beautiful and excited about what’s to come.
