Bio

I am from Brazil and I live in Pittsburgh since 2012. I became a doula, childbirth educator and lactation counselor to guide and support families who are also immigrants adapting to a new culture and rebuilding a support network while navigating the healthcare system. I speak Portuguese, Spanish and English fluently, and some Irish as well. I love being part of a community that relies on each other to create a good experience for parents while birthing a new generation with kindness and respect.

Mantra

Hay que enfrentarse, pero sin perder la ternura jamás!
