Hi there! 🙂
My name is Lina. I am a labor and postpartum doula. I help women with past traumatic birth experiences create new birth experiences where they feel empowered and as in control of their experience as possible. I especially LOVE helping women experience vaginal births after Cesarean ♥
My desire is for YOU to have the birth experience you desire. I understand things can change in labor and your plan may change. I will support and challenge you to have the experience you want, until you say otherwise or if your/your baby’s health is in danger. If your birth plan changes, I will make sure you are well-informed/aware of your options and that you are as comfortable as possible. We can talk through any concerns, feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, etc. you might have.
I don’t take the place of anyone else you want to be a part of your experience. I love helping to incorporate partners and family members by showing ways they can support. I also love being present in the natural, peaceful space loved ones can bring.
While not serving as a doula, I am a wife, mother of two wonderful girls, and a Naturopathic Doctor. I enjoy all of my roles thoroughly. It brings me so much joy to witness women embracing the power within themselves during labor and to support families in their new season of life. I love being a part of the whole process i.e. helping women get pregnant, supporting during and after pregnancy, and especially labor! It would be an honor for me to serve you and for you to share such an intimate moment of your life with me.
