Post Partum Doula (day & evening)
Brenda has been a doula since 2003. During both of her experiences of pregnancy, birth and postpartum she witnessed the power of a community of extraordinary women. It changed her. She was called to be a part of a profession that gives support to new families. It gives her a way to give back some of what she got. Through her time as a doula, and in her personal journey as a mother, she has realized that letting go is essential to moving forward. When we let go, we are transformed. During her birth and postpartum care, Brenda uses deep listening and gives lots of love to help parents negotiate their path to parenthood. In working with each family there is a new opportunity to create light and bring joy; she cherishes the chance to help new families find their strength and voice. The nurturing she offers families is compassionate and non-judgmental.
She was trained by DONA International and Birthing From Within. Prior to becoming a doula, she had a career in international development and worked on projects to improve the lives of women in Latin America through leadership training.
