Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I am a seasoned Massage Therapist with 20 years of experience. I can offer the benefits of Massage to the laboring mother, helping her to relax and focus. As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I help others to initiate breastfeeding successfully and help them overcome any obstacles. I have a background in body-mind techniques which I use during labor to guide mothers to connect and follow their bodies wisdom.

What led you to become a Doula?: After many years helping terminally ill family members and practicing Oncology Massage among other techniques, I realized I was ready for a big change in my life. I decided to start focusing on working for "life" rather than for "death." Life did I say? What better then working with mothers and babies? I became passionate about helping women navigate this most vulnerable and precious moment in their lives. I fell in love with working with infants and their well-being.

What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:

One of my clients wrote in her evaluation: “Adriana felt like family and also upheld a level of professionalism and experience that helped make labor as smooth as possible.” Mothers have said that I create a very relaxed atmosphere that helps them feel safer during labor and birth. Fathers have said that my presence took a big load off their shoulders, and they were able to support their partners without feeling enormous demand on their part. After assisting one of my client’s birth, the physician said to the mother” “Your doula is worth her weight in gold.”
