Nubia, Certified Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Parent Educator, & CBC
Nubia is a certified birth doula, postpartum doula, parent educator and breastfeeding counselor. Most importantly, she is a mother of five children. Her passion and journey supporting women and their families began in the year 2000, after the birth of her first child. Nubia discovered that she was very vocal in her advocacy of birth choices and positive birth environments for everyone. Initially, she supported friends and acquaintances from a distance in preparing for birth. A few years later she served on a free-standing birth center's board of directors and led support groups for the birth center moms, which was the beginning of her work in the professional birth community. After working closely with the Midwives at the birth center in her hometown, Washington, DC , Nubia was determined to help many more families have positive and peaceful births, especially in hospital settings. In 2012, her career as a doula took off as she volunteered her services for many families. Now, Nubia serves a diverse population throughout New York.
As an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, Nubia's mission is to support women and families by respecting their personal choices and bringing awareness to evidence-based birth information. She aims to guide families on the path that prevents the preventable cesarean. Her skills as a Spinning BabiesⓇ Parent Educator helps parents find comfort in pregnancy and make space in utero for their growing baby while encouraging baby to position itself in optimal fetal positioning.
Serving as a Certified Attachment Parenting International (API) Educator, and a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, allows Nubia's relationship with parents to extend far past the birth. She pairs her professional experience with personal experience to bring you an array of information and support as you ride the waves of parenthood.
