Vanessa M. | Doula in Omaha, NE

    Practice overview

    My journey in birth work started when I was in labor with my oldest child and almost lost him and my life due to the hospital not listening. I was lucky to experience having a Doula with my second and third child, and that made a world of difference having another person there to advocate for me and the safety of my children. That support inspired me to pursue a career birth work.

    Care philosophy

    As a full-spectrum doula, I offer comprehensive care and support throughout the entire birth journey. From providing emotional and physical comfort during labor and childbirth to offering a range of services such as teas and nourishing food. I create a nurturing environment. Additionally, I excel in bridging communication gaps and advocating for my clients with hospital staff.

      Couldn’t of done it with out her. She was there every step I needed, helped easy worries, and made sure my birth plan was successful. I was so comfortable and cared for every step of the way, could not have asked for a better experience.
