Growing into Doula Work

My heritage and my own story as a mother have shaped who I am as a doula today.  I was born the youngest of three siblings on a small island called Livingston off the coast of Guatemala to a Salvadoran mother and a Garifuna father from Guatemala and Belize.

Growing up I watched my mother serve our town as a midwife, helping many families safely bring their children into this world.  By the age of 15 she began to take me along to births and I learned by her side.  She taught me how each experience is unique, and I witnessed the absolute joy  it gave her with each little life she guided into this world.

When I gave birth to my own children – one son and two daughters – I understood the blessing of birth on a new level, and began the path to my own vocation of supporting families in birth.  I first began training as a Postpartum Doula in 2006.

Doula Experience and Training

  • I am registered with the Trust Line Registry in the state of California.
  • Certified Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED
  • DONA International Postpartum Doula Workshop, 2006
  • DONA International Introduction to Childbirth, 2015

    It is my pleasure to work with the families I serve in their first weeks and months together with a new baby.  I greatly enjoy coaching and guiding parents, and caring for these sweet bundles of joy. It means a lot to be that families often send me pics and updates as their children grow.

    Over the coming years I look forward to not only supporting more families in our community, but also offering international traveling.

Beyond the birth of a baby is the birth of a new mother.”
