Hi! I am Elizabeth Cano, my passion for childbirth began in birthing my four children within five years and learning the amazing power of the mind, soul, and body in physiologic birth and thereafter. Becoming a DONA trained Doula has given me the professional skills and resources to help other birthing people and their partner(s) awaken and tune into this power. As your Doula, I am honored to hold space for you and meet you where you are along your reproductive journey.
I provide emotional, informational, and physical support and hold your hand as you learn to advocate for your preferences in what is the most personal and sacred time in your life. By encouraging you to feel confident, fully supported, in control of your choices, and well equipped with the tools and comfort measures, my goal is to help you optimize any path your birth takes. I especially want to do all I can to educate the community about the power of birth support, increase access to these evidence based services, and work with BBIPOC and trans and queer birthing people who often experience trauma and inequitable care along their gestational journey. As a Latinx Doula, I am a strong proponent of reclaiming and honoring the cultural roots of birthing communities and their traditional practices. I am on staff as a Birth Doula for Atlantic Health System. I am bilingual in Spanish and is a member of Evidence Based Birth and VBAC Facts Professionals.
