-Greater Portland Area-
I first became passionate about supporting women and their partners through labor while working as a Spanish/ English medical interpreter in the Labor and Delivery ward of a small hospital. I was deeply inspired by the mother’s strength and instantly committed to finding ways to help and advocate for them through this magical experience. I do not have children of my own but have spent many years as a nanny and nurturing people of all ages. I believe in the power of a woman’s body and honor each woman’s individual choices and experience surrounding birth. I am fluent in Spanish from years working in Latin America and I also practice Reiki, yoga and mediation.
