"Hello, my name is Erika. I am a Birth Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor and Registered Dietitian who feels fulfilled when supporting women and families during pregnancy, birth and the beautiful but intense days after birth. I’ve been working with women as a dietitian, and breastfeeding advocate for over 12 years and recently took the step toward doula work, my true calling. I was trained as a birth doula through DONA and believe in the transformative beauty and power of birth.
I have three children of my own. I felt loved, empowered and satisfied throughout each of their births, which in turn launched me into amazing breastfeeding and mothering relationships. My practice, Gentle Presence Doula, is a way for me to share the gift of support and encouragement as birth ushers women through one of the most important and life changing events of their lives.
As a doula I believe in supporting your strength and acknowledging the choices you make. It is a privilege to witness birth…it is profound."
