Born in Boston and raised in two countries (USA and Brazil), I started my journey of self-discovery throught yoga in February 2015 after diving into a 200-hour yoga teacher training. Soon after, I felt a strong desire to pursue a prenatal yoga certification. 

During my prenatal yoga certification, I discovered the strong energy of sisterhood, the wonders of womanhood and the power of giving birth. There I found my calling to be a doula and support women and their birthing partners throught the incredible journey of pregnancy. 

I went on to complete a doula training and have had complementary training breastfedding, infant CPR, infant massage and meditation. 

Informing and supporting women and their birthing partners in a conscious manner about their bodies during the process of birth/labor, I have a strong belief that every birth is different and therefore should be respected and honored individually.

As a feminist and a yogi, respect, agency and awareness are your rights as a human being. Mothers and their birthing partners will remember the birth of their babies for the rest of their lives and it's my purpose and goal to make the birth process as a rewarding, calm and positive experience as possible. Not only do I believe in the power of knowledge and consent, but also in empowering and reassuring the birthing partner of their inner strength to birth from within.

I will support you through the birth process with movement, care and a bit of laughter, and I will be with you through the emotional rollercoaster birth can be.
