C. is a birth wisdom keeper that shows up for her community as a womb priestess, reiki master teacher, labor and birth doula, functional nutritionist specializing in women’s prenatal and postpartum health, placenta encapsulation specialist, childbirth educator, and Dance of Liberation facilitator. She wholly trusts a person’s ability to heal and has worked with women worldwide to do so for over 20 years. Families come to C. from conception through postpartum for support that weaves holistic, soul centered care with evidence based guidance. She is inspired by the belief that we are birthing the next generation for this planet and that providing excellent care for a family to be truly nourished and supported creates a peaceful, loving environment for a baby to be born into.

After a career as a modern dancer C. went on to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. During her 3 years living in India she studied Ayurveda, became trained as a reiki master, a hatha yoga teacher, and discovered her love of Vipassana meditation. Dr. Azra and Seren Bertrand have been mentors for her with their profound work of Womb Awakening and Biomancy. C. trained as a birth doula with Orgasmic Birth founder, Debra Pascali-Bonaro, Bumi Sehat midwife Ibu Robin Lim, Dr. Sarah Buckely, traditional midwife Alejandra Lozano, and IBCLC LaShanda Dandrich. She has been privileged to sit with medicine carriers of various Native and Indigenous tribal traditions and calls upon her maternal Taino lineage of midwives for guidance.

C. lives in Manhattan’s East Village with her husband, tween home-birthed son, and their kitty cat, Peanut. When not working you find her volunteering in the school district, dancing 5 Rhythms or ecstatic dance, visiting with family, or just taking a walk to the local farmer’s market. The stories of her great-grandmothers bringing in “all the babies on the mountain in Puerto Rico” continue to inspire and normalize the beauty, sacredness, and depth of her responsibility to this calling.
