On this journey, I continued to discover many exciting opportunities to deepen my understanding of what it means to truly support and effect change when working together with families as they grow themselves, their bodies change and so do their souls. I began to take a vast array of seminars and classes, joining groups to firmly root myself into my community, reading books, and studying different cultural ways of birthing and caring for newborns around the world and learn from village midwives,, I also saw that we have such a special bond with our children that is truly unconditiona.

I answer your questions complete with evidence-based information so that you are equipped to make important choices when caring for your newborn both day and night. I have extensive experience with breast/chestfeeding as a CSLC, exclusive pumping, and formula selections. I take the time to listen to your goals and wishes as you begin your bonding journey with your baby in order to provide care unique to your family. I also help facilitate skin-to-skin, plenty of rest, hydration, and quiet time to ensure you are recovering and nourished during this delicate time. I believe that a slow and steady

recovery after giving birth is vital as well as helping your partner understand how they can support you during this important time of healing and adjustment. I am also a trained Pediatric Sleep Consultant and can help guide your baby towards healthy sleep habits, self soothing methods which leads into longer, deeper sleep I am available for both day and night shifts and welcome all questions and schedules to help ease your transition.

What people are saying

I hired Coral to encapsulate my placenta and she was wonderful! She went above and beyond to also consult with me about birth preferences and FaceTime during active labor to show positions to help labor progress (which worked!). Her upbeat, friendly personality took any stress out of talking about birth. She was very supportive and respectful, and I would absolutely recommend her as a birth doula.

Placenta Encapsulation

Our placenta is an incredible organ that nourished your baby during her time in utero. So instead of wasting those valuable nutrients by throwing the placenta away after she’s born, doesn’t it make more sense to put them back into your body?
