With an intimate understanding of the tradition, I aspire to bring that same light into each home I have the honor of entering – a sense of calm and peace in the moments as I care for you and your growing family. Clients choose me to step into the role of postpartum doula and newborn specialist due to her blend of education, lived experience, an evidence-based yet relaxed approach. Apart from helping parents and babies feel at ease, I'm also riding the wave with you as a mother to three children and licensed foster parent. I strive to be the peaceful presence that nourishes your family during this tender time. I am inclusive of all family dynamics and seasoned in high-risk pregnancies, fertility struggles, loss, medically fragile children, and adoption

Care philosophy

While I emphasize mothering the mother, I believe the whole family is worthy of equal love and attention. By ensuring everyone is well cared for, there’s more room to recover, rest, learn, process, bond, and find harmony – even in the thick of it. I focus on individualized, simplified, ongoing solutions that feel natural to you and your family. That way, you can feel better equipped.

    My wife and I are first time parents to our baby with GERD and colic. Her colic peak weeks were very difficult and we were at our wits end. We were losing our minds! Our baby changed the moment Terese watched her. She showed us lots of tricks for babies with reflux. Baby has been sleeping through the night since the first time she’s been here. She has come a few more times and we are definitely planning to have her again especially when she starts to roll. Terese is very calm and gentle. She is definitely the baby whisperer!!!

Hello everyone! I am a newly certified birthing Doula, having recently graduated from the prestigious National College of Midwifery. I am a proud mother of two beautiful children who inspire me every day to work harder and make a meaningful contribution to society. The journey towards motherhood is incredibly special, and I feel honored to be part of this process. My passion for supporting women through their birthing journey was ignited when I became a mom. I experienced first-hand the emotional roller coaster ride that comes with pregnancy and childbirth. It made me realize the need for empathetic and skilled support during this critical period in a woman's life. As a Doula, my primary objective is to provide pregnant women with the physical, emotional, and informational support they need to have a positive and empowering birth experience.

Care philosophy

As a Doula, Tayna's birthing philosophy is centered around the belief that birth is a natural, physiological process that every woman has the inherent strength to navigate. She is deeply committed to providing unbiased, non-judgmental support, empowering women to make informed decisions about their birth experience.

I am an enthusiast of humans helping humans. Although I have not experienced any of my own pregnancies, I have physically, mentally, and emotionally with my mom's three experiences. I've seen my mom go through each pregnancy differently as well as each of their births being unique in their own way but beautiful in every way. I have experienced seeing a supportive birth team by your side helps every woman feel more empowered and supported during this beautiful experience. My reason for becoming a birth doula is to come alongside each woman to support their desired birth plan.

Care philosophy

As a doula, I feel the importance of being the best calming presence I can be, I've learned that just having someone there to listen, guide, and sometimes literally carry your weight can make your birth and postpartum experience all the difference. I connect with my clients on a deeper personal level and create that relationship bond rather than client and doula but coming together as a team.

    We had the opportunity to work with Jillian throughout my second pregnancy. She was a referral from the doula we used during the birth of our oldest. Jillian was wonderful to work with throughout my pregnancy and delivery of my son. She was supportive, understanding of our needs/desires, attentive, and friendly. She knows what she is doing and also collaborates with each person to address needs and concerns. My son’s arrival was traumatic and Jillian was with us in each step. Her guidance and support were extremely helpful. Her postpartum visits were supportive to my entire family. She is passionate about this work and it shows. We were so blessed to work with her.

    Fazzy, was truly everything I needed during my pregnancy; she was there every step of the way. At 37 years old, first time mom, extremely high risk with my rainbow baby, Fazzy was able to help figure out my date of conception. She aided me when I had certain symptoms, and advised what she thought I could be experiencing. She made sure the doctor would confirm.

    When I would panic, Fazzy was a phone call away to keep me calm. During the pandemic I freaked out, was between doctors, and Fazzy was able to get access to a doppler which kept me comfortable. She came to my home and helped me learn how to use it and all.

    I was diagnosed with high blood pressure during pregnancy and Fazzy was able to help me understand my medication and dosage. When I had concerns Fazzy advised she thought I was experiencing pre-eclampsia early on but doctor didn’t diagnose. I was put on bed rest and Fazzy checked on me making sure I was taking vitamins and drinking water and not stressing. Weeks later and having to have a c-section at 30 weeks Fazzy ended up being right, i had pre-eclampsia. Fazzy showed up to the emergency to help deliver baby but covid restrictions didn’t allow her to come in. I was able to speak to her right after and she was a sounding board while my baby was in the nicu for 2 months. Fazzy advised me questions to ask and advised me on things to do to help my baby (born 1 pound 15 ounces) come home. My daughter is now 11 months and healthy. I appreciate Fazzy duola services.

Hi my name is JoseIyn but my family and friends call me yose. I am a holistic Birth and Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Educator, and Birthrights advocate in Orange County, California. My passion for Birth work began in 2020 when I got pregnant with my daughter Kailani. During pregnancy I prepared mentally, physically, and spiritually for labor, but did not prepare for the postpartum period. With no family or support around it made my 4th trimester a very difficult time for me and my partner. This is what made me more passionate about supporting parents during the postpartum period. I completed her Birth Worker training with Bebo Mia Inc when her daughter was only 3 months old. After the training I realized that I wanted to take a more ancestral approach in birth work, and began learning about Mexican Indigenous Birth and Postpartum Traditions. I am constantly growing and learning! As your Doula I will walk with you through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Care philosophy

Our philosophy of birth is that it is designed to be a normal, natural process that your body was perfectly made to experience. I will support you and educate you on every stage of your journey.

I found my way to the birth world after having a very long and challenging labor with my first child. Through the 3 day process, I could not imagine having done it without my doula. I want to make sure every birthing family feels empowered during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period. Being a Lactation Consultant I can help ensure your breastfeeding journey gets off to a great start and help you should you encounter any challenges along the way. I'm happy to support families from preconception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, as well as through miscarriage/loss/abortion. I love introducing women to the ancient practice of vaginal steaming so that they may prepare for labor, shorten labor, and help them heal postpartum all in a very relaxing way. I love to ensure that new families, in particular the birthing person, are well cared for as they adjust to life with a newborn. For postpartum clients I enjoy cooking nourishing meals and being a supportive, encouraging, and knowledgeable guide. As a mother of 2 myself, I know how valuable support throughout your transition to parenthood can be. Feel free to message or email me to set up a time to Zoom or chat and see if I'm the right doula for you!

Care philosophy

I offer non-judgmental care to help you have a birth where you feel empowered and that look back on with fondness. With lots of knowledge regarding lactation, I can help ensure your baby feeding journey gets off to an excellent start. I am also a Placenta Specialist, Certified Vaginal Steam Consultant + Herbalist.

    From the first moment you spend in Natasha’s orbit, it’s abundantly clear why she chose the path of doula—or maybe that it chose her! Natasha is an incredibly calming, nurturing, and supportive presence, yet her confidence, assertiveness and poise radiate just as strongly. This unique combination of traits is absolutely key for a person serving that role.

    I was fortunate enough to have Natasha right by my side as my doula and friend throughout my entire labor and birthing experience. She brought everything I needed physically, mentally and emotionally and intuitively always knew which tools to pull from the kit. She spoke up for me when it didn’t even cross my mind and she anticipated exactly when to lead with humor, when to cry with me, when to rub my shoulders, when to pull back my hair and when to just hold my hand. She effortlessly collaborated with the entire medical staff, making me feel like I was on a winning team. Her expertise, knowledge, assuredness and optimism gave me an overarching sense of security all along the way.

    From my perspective, just the idea of having a baby is painful and scary no matter how you slice it…but somehow, Natasha also made it fun.

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 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).

    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!

    Being French I had never heard about doula before. For my first pregnancy I knew I will not have an epidural and I needed someone to guide me this is when someone recommended Mathilde. She had been very supportive during my whole pregnancy, recommended me to use some self hypnosis. She never judged me, recommended me some practice but never imposed and most of all she listen to me and my wishes. The big day I sent her a message in middle of the night and she arrived ready to assist me and be there to be my voice to all the nurse to make sure they follow my birthing plan. She always included my husband, gave him and advised him how to be the best partner ever during this delivery. I could never dream of a better delivery and better doula. I recommend her 1000%.

My interest in this work began as a young adult when my older sister was pregnant and I was invited to be a member of her birth team. I remember being overwhelmingly awed by the birth process and the human body. My interest continued as I started on the path to become a labor and delivery nurse. I found, rather quickly, the path of becoming a L&D was too clinical for me and did not feed my soul how I wanted. While in search for what was next, I became pregnant myself. I was confident I had wanted a home birth with a midwife and a doula, but ended up having a planned hospital birth due to a misdiagnosed medical condition. My birth was not at all what I wanted it to be. I was not given options, I was not given information, I was not given time to think and it left me somewhat scarred. After my daughter was born, my husband was only able to take a week off of work. I also had my stepdaughter to take care of and I felt like I didn't have time to heal, establish a good breastfeeding routine, or bond with my darling girl. I remember feeling completely unsupported. It was then that I decided I wanted to help mamas to have empowered births that they wouldn't need to emotionally recover from. My experience shaped my doula practice. My experience makes informed consent my top priority with my clients as well as bonding time within the family and breastfeeding support. I love what I do and I love helping each family I work with to have a more fulfilling experience.

Care philosophy

My goal with all of my clients is to ensure they feel informed, empowered and encouraged to advocate for themselves.

Not only is she full of knowledge but she is also patient, kind, supportive, non judgmental. She has the energy and passion to make you excited about what can be a scary process especially after having experienced a traumatic first birth. She is nothing short of amazing and I’m so lucky to have had her with me during labor and birth. Thank you Sabrina!

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 Moreno Valley, CA, 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.
