I cant wait to hear about your pregnancy and wishes for your birth experience.

As a DONA certified Doula I have a wide range of experiences. Areas I am experienced with include, but are not limited to: hospital birth, birth center care, unmedicated birth, preeclampsia, pregnancy resulting from fertility treatment, married and unmarried partners, pregnancy with special diets (Vegan and Gestational Diabetes).

Childbirth is one of the most awe inspiring and empowering experiences in life. Like many people I grew up hearing about horrific birth experiences, but every once in a while I would hear a positive one. I always wondered: Why do people just accept birth as something to be feared? After all, people have been having babies since the beginning of time. Already in my career as a Doula I have seen just how much our body can do when we just trust it.

My journey to becoming a doula started every time I heard a negative birth story, or doubt in the human body. While I was in theatre school a friend of mine showed me the now famous documentary, The Business of Being Born. In 2019, after going through early pregnancy loss, I began to write a play about the rights of pregnant and birthing people and was driven to do more to serve birthing people in my community. After the birth of my daughter in November 2020, I started the training and certification process of becoming a doula. I felt like I had come home to my true calling, to serve people as they bring new life into this world.

My goal as a doula is to facilitate a positive birth experience for the growing family, whatever that birth experience may look like. I am happy to work with families with all different types of birth plans, backgrounds and family preferences. It is my strong belief that a Doula should be accessible to all birthing people regardless of medical history, gender, race, faith, or socioeconomic background.

Being pregnant with baby #2 I was exciting everything was going right except for the fact that I knew I was going to have to give birth in the hospital which traumatized me the 1st time around.  I started doing research I came across doulas but none of them were in my price range. After seeing a panicked Facebook post on a local moms ground C. reached out to me and as soon as we spoke I instantly felt a connection. I felt she understood and heard me. The first time she came to my house we talked about my 1st birth and my birth plan. I wanted it to be different this time. Fast forward to around my due date I had false labor at that same hospital and C. was so nice and amazing she came with me and stayed there until I was released. That’s when I knew I chose the right person to help me, a week later I was induced, I was scared and in pain but both my partner and C. were there and I felt in control this time, in spite of the fact that I asked to get an epidural. I struggled with my decision and she said something like “there’s a difference between pain and suffering and  ultimately it’s up to you.”  That hit me and I didn’t feel judged when I got it. Baby boy was born healthy I couldn’t thank C. more for her love and support.

During my second pregnancy, I thought “I’d love to have a doula since I did experience a miscarriage and would love to have that emotional support from somebody experienced, but can I afford it?” I remembered being induced with my pregnancy and feeling as if I really did not understand the reason why. I reached out to C. and she was providing her services at a sliding scale, which worked perfectly with our budget.

I’m not going to lie, I was a little scared to meet her since it was COVID and things were just a little weird. We jumped on a Zoom call and I feel like we immediately hit it off. I’m Hispanic and C. is white, so I thought the culture difference would be weird. But believe it or not, I felt really comfortable and I felt comfortable asking the “stupid” questions.

After our Zoom meeting where we discussed the process of working with a doula, what is expected of her during pregnancy and leading up to birth, it felt like a friend who you could text and ask questions. Eventually ,C. came over to my house which was nice since she was able to meet dad and big sister. During this visit we got to know each other and we went through my ideal birth, we created a birth plan, and we built a great rapport. Eventually as my due date got closer we spoke about various movements we can do on the day I’m in labor. I went into labor at 38 weeks 5 days and as soon as I started feeling pain, I contacted C. who walked me through the process. But things moved quickly and I ended up texting her “She’s here!”. My daughter is now 3 months and C. still shoots me a text to see how I’m doing and if she can be of any help. If you’re doubting or double thinking if a doula is for you, C. is the girl for you!
