I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The foundations of our culture lie in strong familial relationships and the community around new families. Mothers and often grandmothers traditionally are ever present during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and the postpartum period. They are the masterful holders of space and support for the new mother. Despite the lack of a label, they absolutely “doula” the birthing family through and into this new chapter. I personally grew up in a multi-generational home with my grandparents and my great-grandmother. With every passing year, I hold this gift closer and closer to my heart. Being so far away from my home and my family, being a Latina birth Doula is a way to recognize the rooted desire within me to participate in this ancestral rite of passage. It is my honor to hold space for birthing people as they embark on their parenting journeys.
