Paulina is a full-spectrum doula residing on occupied Cherokee land (presently known as Asheville, NC). They enjoy a spiritual + energetic connection with the earth and they’re happy to work with folks who are accepting + affirming of beings from all backgrounds. Their approach is evidence-based and includes advocacy, yogic principles, and meditation. They have a great desire to bring love and healing to those they work with. They feel it is their calling to bring people together, to support, and to offer peace and calmness to otherwise high-energy situations. Paulina loves being able to serve all families, they also have a special interest in creating affirming birth experiences for queer, non-binary, and trans birthing people, as well for as families in arrangements beyond the binary. Please check their website for their latest offerings and for additional information.
