    Practice overview

    Birth and postpartum have always been very revered in my culture and I always say I have been a doula for my whole life because of this. I love to bring this idea of birth and postpartum as something to be celebrated to all kinds of cultures and backgrounds. I incorporate my knowledge as an herbalist, student midwife, and home-birth mother in offering support to families. I offer birth doula services that include birth prep and prenatal visits as well as mother-focused postpartum services.

    Care philosophy

    On birth: Every woman/birthing person deserves support, advocacy, and attention during her/their birth. As a birth doula, I offer that intuitive support.
    On postpartum: One of the three golden opportunities in life for deep healing both physically and mentally, I use this time to help a new mother heal using (rest, warmth, nourishment, and support).

      I can’t say enough amazing things about Lucero! She was so knowledgeable about remedies and things prior to the birth to help with pain and discomfort I was having, which was so helpful. She always responded quickly to my texts or calls. She set up a meeting on Zoom for me to even meet her backup doula’s that would be available to help me if for some reason she couldn’t make it down on time. That made me feel so much more comfortable knowing that someone would be there no matter what. She also met with my husband and I ahead of time to make sure we were on the same page about everything and that she knew our wishes for the labor. She was so helpful with recommending things my husband could do for me while I was laboring at home until we could get to the hospital, in case I needed relief. And then came the delivery, she was there for an entire day and night with us, went home for a few hours, and then came back again in the early morning hours to be there when I delivered. She massaged me during, in between contractions, when I was having extreme back labor, advised me on pumping and doing things to progress my labor, provided essential oils, put up calming things around the room and positive affirmations, and much more. She advocated for me and always questioned my midwife in the right way to make sure that I was getting all the proper information and that I knew the risks and benefits of the choices before making a decision. She kept me calm and worry free.She was the best!

      Lucero, I could go on and on about this woman. Unfortunately I met her a week after I gave birth but turns out I really needed the postpartum support. She helped me work through my labor story. I was struggling mentally and physically weeks after delivery and finally asked for help. She helped lift my spirits and helped me heal in so many ways. She provided oils and teas that she prepared in advance that helped with my healing. She prepared an herbal bath that was soooo relaxing and guided me on my postpartum healing. She was so helpful and willing to help me, my husband, and my older children while she was here. My only complaint is that God didn’t bring her into my life sooner so she could have helped me bring my son into the world that would have been such a blessing. But I am thankful to have someone to call for next time!!! So grateful to have her in my life now. She is truly a great woman and an amazing healer!

      Lucero was my doula for the birth of my son in December of 2022. In the months leading up to my delivery, she met with me for prenatal visits during which she provided support and education. I am a pediatric physician and have attended deliveries during training; I felt she was well-informed on the relevant anatomic and pharmacologic concepts. She was emotionally present during my labor and delivery in a hospital setting and was an invaluable resource to me, keeping me as calm as possible and having confidence that my son and I could get through it together. She helped create a more comfortable environment while communicating with my care team and respecting my preferences and needs. She was consistently professional, empathetic, and helped guide me through the decision-making processes required during my induction. I would recommend her without reservation to any birthing parent.

      Lucy was an amazing addition to my birth experience! I was planning on having a non medicated birth. After almost 24 hours of labor my body was exhausted and I felt that I would benefit from an epidural. I was very ashamed and felt weak for not being able to push through but Lucy reassured me that I will still have a beautiful birth experience! She was very hands on, literally healing put pressure on my hips during almost every contraction. I come from a medical background and wanted to trust the hospital staff with their suggestions more than I thought I would and Lucy was there to remind me of my initial wants but also support my change of plans. Thank you for your help!!

      I had a wonderful experience with Lucero. She was attentive and always quick to answer my endless questions. It was very clear to me that she was highly qualified. While I was very grateful for her presence through my pregnancy, my real appreciation for her came the actual day of my labor. To start, she was quick to arrive when my husband called her in. She was there while I was still laboring in my home. She knew exactly where to apply pressure and massage to get me through the contractions. She was hands on, not shy, quick, and comforting. When we arrived at the hospital she was my advocate. She was not shy to advocate to the nurses about my labor requests and preferences even when they attempted to pressure me otherwise. Her real shinning moment came when I was 10 cm dilated but the baby was at -1 station. The doctor wanted to insert a screw into baby’s head to monitor her which I really did not want happening. Lucero quickly went into action and told me of a laboring position that would help the baby go down. I listened to her and thanks to that the baby’s head was crowning before the doctor had a chance to come back with the screw. I just remember all the medical staff rambling about getting ready to receive the baby as they were not expecting her to drop in such little time. I will forever be grateful to Lucero for this. She is also a wonderful and pleasant person. Highly recommend!! She KNOWS what she’s doing. My birth story would be very different without her.

      Lucero was unbelievable. The don’t know what we would have done without her. She was absolutely essential and helped us navigate every curveball and bump in the road during the pregnancy and delivery. I would trust her with my life, and couldn’t recommend her more.

      When I first started searching for a doula I wanted someone to help my second birth to be redemptive and healing. I wanted to feel supported, cared for, and powerful. Lucero helped me achieve all of this and more. She educated me and my family when I was pregnant, she was attentive especially toward the end when I was struggling, and when I went into labor she was there. She arrived to my labor and brought a calming and strong female energy. In my birth story I swear it was her touch of counter pressure on my back with a heating pad that broke my water. And in my postpartum days she helped find beauty again in my new body. Lucero has a special place in my heart that I draw from regularly in my day to day motherhood. I feel Lucero is a blessing to all women and I was lucky enough to have her in that time of my life.

      Lucero was able to educate both my husband and I on what to expect throughout pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Having her there every step of the way helped ease any worries we had as first time parents. She helped make my extremely long birth enjoyable and stuck with me the whole way through. Her postpartum care is top notch, she even helped me breastfeed after struggling to do so for weeks. I cannot recommend her enough!
