Why am I a doula?
My commitment to reproductive justice and health equity has led me to birth work as a doula.
I have experience in reproductive health as a childbirth educator, OBGYN medical assistant, program coordinator for a sexual and reproductive health and rights non-profit organization, and clinical data manager in a gynecologic oncology research lab. In all of these roles, I am drawn to work that addresses health inequities, particularly access to reproductive healthcare.
I understand pregnancy is both an empowering and vulnerable time, and I want to provide meaningful support for all pregnancy outcomes including birth, adoption, loss, and abortion.
I use she/her pronouns and live in the east mountains with my family. I support pregnant people in the east mountains, Albuquerque, and surrounding areas, and am a member of the group Doulas of the Southwest.
