About me

For me, working with families and supporting them during life’s most special moments has always been my thing. My journey started in my teen years when I took my first human development class, and when I began nannying. As a nanny I worked with toddlers and children with disabilities in my local area. I loved working with these children and I just knew I was meant to work with families. In my adult years I have worked as a daycare director leading Spanish curriculum, and supporting families through pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond. I have undergone many years of training and learning to become the full spectrum doula that I am today. Becoming a mother myself opened my eyes tremendously and it is what reminds me why I do what I do. My desire to meet families where they are, help them tie the loose ends, and hold space for them during these special and transforming moments.

Service introduction

I offer tailored and holistic support to women and families during pregnancy, labor, postpartum, and infant loss. My training and work is centered around reclaiming ancestral roots during these sacred life moments. I achieve this with the use of traditional Mesoamerican and Caribbean traditions. Some services I offer are: emotional support, hands on physical support- massage, nail maintenance, and vidente based resources, ongoing information exchange to empower you to make the best decisions for you and your family.

*Payment plans/sliding scale are available* During pregnancy I offer 2-3 prenatal visits. During these visits we will be able to get to know each other better, go over in depth birth education, affirmations, postpartum preparation, birth preferences, and pain management support. I will be available to support you 24/7 via text, call, or email. You will have access to my library of resources including books, articles, list of providers, and more. Starting at 37 weeks I will be on cal for you and your family. Once you are in active labor I will show up for you and your family in any way that is needed wherever you decide to birth. This may look like me saying prayers/affirmations with you, preparing nutritional snacks and beverages, cleaning up, massage, coaching your partner in ways to support you, keeping your other kids company, getting a bath started for you, and making sure you feel safe during labor. I will be by your side until baby is earth side and immediately postpartum. I will also provide 3 postpartum visits. These visits I will be able to support you physically, emotionally, and connect you to further resources.
