“This group of doulas are fun to chat with and very knowledgeable. The entire experience was unexpectedly relaxing for me.”-Linlin
Antonia Hernandez (she/her)
In my role as your Doula, I aim to cultivate an environment filled with laughter, tranquility, and affection, ensuring you feel secure and empowered throughout your birthing experience. Throughout your pregnancy, we will convene 2-3 times to discuss your intentions, address any concerns, and practice various methods of physical support tailored to your preferences. Recognizing that every family is distinct, I am committed to adaptability and meeting your individual needs. As you approach full term, I am at your disposal around the clock for any phone or text support you may require, and will be present at your home or chosen birthing location whenever you feel prepared. I offer unwavering support throughout labor, extending care to both you and your family, and remain by your side until you are settled after the birth.
