Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: 
Ethnicity-Latina; Mastered Social Worker Degree, 2005

What led you to become a Doula?: I had a doula for the birth of my daughter and loved the experience. I decided that I wanted to provide the same care for other women but put it on my laundry list of things to do. So when my friend asked me to be her doula 5 years after I gave birth I found Pro Doula and got trained.

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

I was told by a woman that her labor was so hard and that I really helped her get through a difficult time. One mom didn’t think should could nurse her baby but with daily visits and phone check-ins she was able to nurse her baby.

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: kellymom.com and babycenter.com

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: That she is beautiful and amazing!

What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: My time.

What is your favorite TV show or movie?: Scandal

What is your favorite place to vacation?: Anywhere in the Caribbean.

What is your favorite food?: Spanish

What is your favorite way to spend a day off?: Relaxing watching movie alone.

Who lives in your house?: My husband and daughter.
