LUCIA, BIRTH DOULA
I am a birth doula living in Brooklyn. For many years, I have specialized in the care taking of infants, but after meeting a former (pregnant!) employer of mine, I was inspired to become a doula. It takes a village to have and raise a child, and I want to be a part of that village. As your doula, I provide unbiased, constant physical, emotional, and educational support. I am CPR certified and I received my birth doula training from DONA International and specialized LGBT Support training from Morgane Richardson.
I believe every pregnant person deserves to have the birth they want. It can be a daunting process, but with my help, we can navigate your pregnancy and birth together. My goal is to empower pregnant people to tap into the grounding strength that comes along with pregnancy and birth. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and educated in Pittsburgh, I found myself in New York in 2012. I received a BFA in Drama from Carnegie Mellon University and have been living and working in New York for over 5 years. I am currently in the process of becoming a Nurse-Midwife, as well. I am humbled by the strength of the mothers I have supported in birth and I look forward to continuing to serve
