Poppy became a birth and postpartum doula in 2018, switching careers completely from Corporate Sales and truly stepping into her authenticity. Poppy’s enthusiasm and appreciation for her role as a doula has motivated her to become diversely cross trained through various birth work training and certification programs such as DONA International, Spinning Babies , Madriella Doula Network, Brilliant Birth Academy, Hypnobirthing and Dancing for Birth. She is passionate about supporting families throughout their journey in the ways that make sense for them with love and understanding and rooted in evidence and information. Poppy not only provides birth and postpartum services but placenta services as well as physical and emotional support beyond the fourth trimester as she understands that often the need for support continues well beyond the postpartum period and throughout various other life transitions.
Beyond birth work, her innate desire for connecting with women drives her to leading women’s circles and moms groups monthly. Poppy has two children of her own, ages 20 and 16. Together they enjoy exploring all the things that Northeast Ohio has to offer from the Metroparks to the Cleveland food scene.
