Embracing Love and Care

Hi, I’m Esthanette (Es tuh net), and thank you for considering having me as a part of your journey! I’m a trained full-spectrum doula (Doula Trainings International, DTI). All that means is that I can support you during the prenatal, labor, birth, and postnatal period. It also means that I can assist you at all phases of reproductive health like fertility and assisted reproduction, abortion, or cycle awareness.
Before becoming a birth worker, I received my Masters of Science in Health & the Public Interest from Georgetown University and my BA in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts Boston.
As a Black birth worker, part of my role is to amplify Black birthing people and People of Color’s voices. I aim to ensure that you receive evidence-based information to make informed decisions about your care. I want to help equip you with the tools not only to navigate your birth space and care but tools to help you feel prepared after your baby’s arrival.
My goal is to work with you to provide nonjudgmental, embracing, educational, intimate, and personalized care throughout your journey.
Not only do I work with you, but I also help you to understand how to create and reach out to your village - because they matter too!
I’m ready to embrace you and welcome you to my doula family ♥
