My testimony
Being a doula is not a job, it's a life commitment.

My journey as a birth doula started 7 years ago, working with Latino Hispanas living in Toronto .

I have attended numerous births at homes, at the Birth Centre and at several hospitals.

As a certified doula, I believe my learning continues seeing parents in action everyday. As a prenatal yoga practitioner I find the balance to help mothers physically and emotionally. In my doula life, I have been extremely lucky to have the best mentors and I am very thankful for their teachings. 

Ser una doula no es un trabajo, es un compromiso de vida.

Desde hace 7 años comencé a trabajar como doula junto a madres Latino Hispanas en Toronto. He acompañado numerosos partos en casa, en la casa de partos y en hospitales. Soy instructora de yoga prenatal y doula certificada con DONA. He tenido excelentes maestras y continúo aprendiendo día a día, trabajando juntos a parteras y familias. 

Testimonials

"Sandra is a naturally caring and compassionate personality, helpful and informative. Pre-labour advice was helpful in confirming where we were mentally going into our baby's birth, and having an eager pair of helping hands and on the fly advice and coaching during our labour was invaluable. We would wholeheartedly recommend Sandra to anyone, but especially to first timers as her reassurance and guidance would certainly help people through this journey". Izabela M.
"Sandra estaba allí para mí y para mi bebé. Todavía recuerdo que ella fue la primera en apoyarme durante el trabajo de parto y que llegó en medio de la noche a pesar de una tormenta de invierno. Gracias a Sandra, mi embarazo fue realmente fácil de llevar y me sentí cómoda durante todo mi largo trabajo de parto hasta que nació mi bebé. Sentí que Sandra era para mí como una hermana, pero con todas las técnicas para mantenerme relajada y sentirme cerca de mi bebé. También ayudó a mi esposo a mejorar su participación durante el parto y el postparto. Sandra hizo que mi parto fuera especial y único. ¡Estamos muy agradecidos! ". Gabriela R.
