Hi! I'm Zoë

I'm a birth & postpartum

doula, author, and founder

of AWAKEN space in

my practice. My other big job is being a mama to my daughter June. When I'm not momming, doula-ing, teaching, or writing, I dabble in graphic design. My mission is to highlight fresh perspectives on women's health, pregnancy, birth, motherhood, and beyond. Learn more about me, AWAKEN space, and my writing.
