I became a mother in early 2016. I never questioned the conveyor-belt process of labor and birth, and I certainly wasn’t aware that there were “choices” involved. After a 22-hour highly medicalized labor, the birth of a perfect baby boy, and a three day stay in the hospital due to complications, we brought home our son. I suffered with undiagnosed Postpartum Anxiety and Depression for over two years. During that time, I began to speak out against the growing societal pressures placed on modern day families and the effects of those pressures in the postpartum period. That’s when I was bit by the birth bug. You see, you can’t research postpartum issues without researching birth and you can’t research anything mental health without researching past trauma. I not-so-graciously fell head first down the birth nerd rabbit hole and learning how intricately weaved these experiences are had me wanting to learn more and more and more (and more). Unfortunately, with the knowledge came some pretty difficult processing. Learning about options, informed consent, and the physiology of labor and birth left me feeling betrayed, hurt, and sold short by my first birth experience. How was I supposed to know about what I didn’t know that I didn’t know, you know? The deeper I dug, the more apparent it became that our society as a whole is incredibly uninformed and misinformed about the bodies we live in. This is particularly true surrounding pregnancy and birth and I felt (and still feel!) the passion to become a part of changing that. Born was my career as a doula and Childbirth Educator! I have since attended formal trainings and furthered my education by attending conferences, listening to lectures, joining communities, self-study, and hands-on experience supporting families from coast to coast making me knowledgeable in subjects including fertility, pregnancy, labor & birth, the postpartum period, and infant care. In 2019 I rocked a bad-ass, empowering, intervention-free birth of my own and welcomed my youngest son into this world. Taking charge of my birth and having my voice respected and heard was a complete opposite of my first experience. It was my version of perfect. As a birth worker, I want you to have your version of perfect. I provide unbiased, non-judgemental, evidence-based support and help you make informed confident decisions because I believe you know what’s best for your body and your baby and you have the right to make that choice. I am passionate about normalizing the diverse impact of birth and understand that every version of trauma is valid and as individual as we are. I am committed to doing all of the above in order to facilitate a satisfying experience in pregnancy, birth, & beyond; whatever that means for you.

Care philosophy

As a birth worker I am committed to providing unbiased, non-judgmental, evidence-based support to families during pregnancy, through labor and into the early postpartum period. I am passionate about normalizing the diverse impact of birth and helping you make informed confident decisions surrounding your birth to facilitate a satisfying birth experience, whatever that means for you.

A postpartum doula in El Paso, TX is meant to help the entire family and their role is not just limited to the birthing parent and newborn. A doula provides physical and emotional support to parents and siblings, but they also offer information and advice regarding how to feed, bathe, swaddle, and soothe the baby.

They also often help with postpartum depression issues, and are considered child care “consultants” rather than medical professionals. Many postpartum doulas in El Paso, TX offer a range of services that can help with parents trying to adjust to a newborn child. These services often include:

  • Sibling care
  • Assist with household chores
  • Parent-baby bonding
  • Physical and emotional recovery
  • Support to parents and extended family

A postpartum doula in El Paso, TX can have a lasting positive impact on a family and help them feel more confident about their parenting role and the way that they feed and nurture their baby. They might offer advice regarding feeding, bathing, and parent-baby bonding.

It is important to note that a postpartum doula might offer advice but is not expected to provide medical care of any kind or serve as a replacement to an accredited physician. Postpartum doulas are also not qualified to prescribe medication.

Many new parents want to know about certified postpartum doulas and how exactly they are certified. Since the demand for postpartum doulas has greatly expanded in the last several years, the number of reputable postpartum doula training and certification programs has grown in El Paso, TX. Training criteria can differ from program to program, but most follow a similar curriculum which includes core academic curriculum and practical hours and real-life care experience.

One of the most common national postpartum doula training certifications comes from DONA International. A postpartum doula usually receives about 27 hours of practical training before they are a certified postpartum doula.

There are also CAPPA-certified postpartum doulas in El Paso, TX, as well. These doulas were certified by the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, an international organization that certifies doulas and other childbirth educators/professionals.

As a reminder, because postpartum doulas are not trained to be a medical professional and diagnose and treat medical conditions, a certification is not required for them to practice.

As their names suggest, a birth doula’s main priority is to provide support services before, during and in the moments immediately after childbirth. A postpartum doula’s obligations usually begin after the birth, for several weeks or months. In many cases, your birth doula will also be a trained and certified postpartum doula, which can provide a continuity of care that many parents find extremely valuable.

Many parents want to know whether a postpartum doula or a baby nurse would meet their needs and expectations. A baby nurse might be focused on making sure that a baby sleeps or feeds properly, but that might be the extent of their role. A postpartum doula generally offers more holistic services for their clients.

A postpartum doula in El Paso, TX is expected to be more involved with the family as a whole. They might remain involved in sibling care or also provide emotional support to the partner as both parents adjust to becoming new parents. This may even include support for older siblings, light housework, and even meal prep. A postpartum doula provides more physical, emotional, and informational support than a baby nurse.

You can hire two types of doulas in El Paso, TX: a birth doula and a postpartum doula. The birth doula is during your pregnancy and through the birth of your child. They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

A postpartum doula will support you for the first few weeks after the baby is born. They provide in-home assistance, including teaching you how to take care of your newborn, acting as lactation consultant, and can provide some night nanny services.
