When I started supporting expectant parents thirty-five years ago, the term “Doula” didn’t exist. I called what I did “Professional Labor Support” and people thought I worked for the Unions. Now doula is a household word, like Kleenex, and I’ve gone and changed it up to Virtual Doula; supporting you from pregnancy through newborn parenthood, virtually, by phone, text, email and video chat.

I’m here 24/7 to help you with everything from conceiving to contractions to convincing the baby it’s time to sleep (please, dear God).

My focus isn’t on all the information that’s out there or what’s “best”. My focus is on what you already know about yourself so you can get clear about what’s best for you.

“They say it takes a village to raise a child – and if you have Lisa Gould Rubin in your virtual village, you’ll be the luckiest parents in town.”
Josh & Sarah.

I am here to really listen throughout your pregnancy, around your birth and taking care of your new baby so I can help you get to the only voice that really matters….yours.

I want for you what you want for yourself.
Let’s find out what that is!
