I have been a birth worker since 2017! I am a queer muxerista, daughter of immigrants, first generation graduate, mami to Sofia and Joseph and wife to Sy! I have been an advocate and activist for the past 17 years in anti-violence movement. Throughout that time my work has intersected with reproductive justice, in various ways. I believe birth is transformative and ceremonial. Informed consent, body autonomy, trauma-informed, and centering my clients are some of the values within my work.
I came to birthwork through my own full spectrum of experiences (i.e. abortion, miscarriage, fertility journey, and birthing twins). Each one of those journeys provided me insight which allowed for me to go inward and reflect; ultimately, they have shaped who I am as a birth worker.
At our core a birthing person has all the tools within themselves to birth their child(ren). A doula is meant to help you find that knowledge within yourself and provide access to external information (i.e. research on interventions, prenatal care being offered, baby care, etc.). Doulas also support you during prenatal, labor, and postpartum.
Full spectrum doulas provide services inclusive of the above as well as preconception, abortion, miscarriage, loss, and adoption.
I will center you, your needs, and your desired birth. Birth transforms the birthing person, their family, and community. You already have all you need within you. My role is one of co-creating your vision, support, and bare witness to your power!
