ABOUT


A little About Denise

From an early age I was interested in childbirth.  I attended my first birth in 2002 and was moved by such a miracle.  I then developed a deep an abiding passion for working with childbearing families which inspired me to become a DONA International Certified Birth Doula, a Certified Stillbirthday Birth & Bereavement Doula and a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator.

With almost 10 years of hospital experience, I support families from different cultural backgrounds and needs and facilitate childbirth and basic breastfeeding classes to adults and teens to prepare them for the birth of their baby in a hospital setting.

My ultimate goal and desire is for you to have the knowledge and confidence as you prepare for the birth of your baby through informational, spiritual, emotional and physical support, before, during and after birth.

In my free time, I enjoy giving back to my church, community and native soil- Panama, supporting women and their families through the journey of pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood.
