Senior Doula, Postpartum Doula and Childbirth Educator


My name is JillAnna and thank you for taking the time to consider working together. I am a mother of 10 grown children in a beautiful blended family; and I adore the birth phase of life. I must; since I have been in this field for 30 plus years now:)

I was born in California mostly raised in Chicago; and schooled in St. Louis MO @ Washington University; Columbus OH @ Ohio State University;  University of Hawaii; and I most recently completed training at Cornell University based in New York. I am CAPPA certified; and have acquired many degrees and certifications in the field of birth work during my tenure.

My Birthing interests and experience has opened doors to international consulting, government advocacy, boards, publications, and service projects all over the world; with the goal of empowering, equipping, advocating, and defending the rights of mothers, the unborn, newly born, and 0-5’s; often in crisis, trauma, poverty, or displacement. My favorite work; though, is individual support with families.

Now I am here in pleasant Hawaii to help you and your family during your transition into parenthood; as safely, peacefully, and joyfully as possible.

Welcome to the wonderful; if sometimes wild world of birthing! Let us navigate the fears,  overcome the challenges, and embrace the joys together:)

Jill was great. We appreciated her calmness, her many years of experience that could reassure us of what was happening throughout the delivery process, and her communication skills in talking with us and explaining what was going on. Jill's help throughout the labor and delivery process was a key part of the successful birth, and we are very grateful for her help.
New dad, Jeremy
