My journey began with my own childbirth. It was then that I experienced what kind of benefits a doula can bring not only to a woman but also to the couple during labor. I fell in love immediately with this profession. Since 2016, I am privileged to have helped women and their partners make these experiences as positive and healthy as possible. I am proud to support the families, initially in Brazil and nowadays across Santa Clarita Valley. More than witnessing a child's birth, I mostly like to witness the process of a woman becoming a mother.
