About the Provider

I’m not sure if it was my mother’s career in the ob/gyn department that fascinated me about pregnancy and birth or if it was always meant to be. Though I have always had interest in birth work, I pursued a 10 year career in Healthcare Administration at New York Presbyterian Hospital in NY. Through my different experiences I was a patient advisor and patient advocate, these roles gave me a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many families. My desire to support and empower people came full circle in 2020 when I decided to start a Doula Mentorship Program with Manhattan Birth. I am constantly looking to grow and learn, always searching for the next steps I can take to educate myself so that I can better serve you and your family! As your birth doula, I am humbled and grateful to join you on this journey where we will work closely together to help you achieve your ideal birth. I provide emotional and spiritual support through calming and grounding techniques such as breathing, affirmations or guided meditation. I help manage your pain through relaxation, comforting touch, light movements and other tools that work for you. I give you the educational information needed to advocate for yourself and to make decisions based on credible and comparable information. Spending the first 6 months of my postpartum period in Dominican Republic my elders taught me how to observe cuarentena (40 day recovery postpartum), my baby and I were cared for, nourished and I was healing. As your postpartum doula, I bring this traditional knowledge along with assistance in recovering from childbirth (including healing herbal baths/bath sitz), caring for your newborn(s), guidance with your feeding goals, light housework and preparing warm, hearty and healthy postpartum foods. I’m all about providing a care that will allow you, as the new parent to thrive and truly heal. I believe that birth is an incredible and intimate rite of passage and one that is unique to every family. I hope through working together I am able to provide a sense of safety, security and confidence.
