A safe place for your voice to be heard
Hey, I’m Eleanor! I’m a labor doula, student midwife, and working towards my masters in herbalism. I’m a native Houstonian who loves exploring the city with my family. I have a passion for teaching and was a high school teacher for 8 years before transitioning to a full time doula. I have degrees in theology and anthropology and am passionate about the history of birth in America, inclusion and diversity, and how science and technology continues to advance in all birth settings.
After my first daughter was born, I realized that people everywhere need support in childbirth. I was living in New York, attending Fordham University, and had little support during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. While pregnant, I became fascinated with the development of childbirth techniques and interventions. I devoured books on childbirth and my passion never waned. I continue to read whatever I can get into my hands and am passionate about the maternal mortality crisis in America. I am a doula because all people deserve to be surrounded by a community of unconditional support as they become parents.
I believe in the power of birthing people. I believe that all births are valid, and no matter the type of birth you are seeking, you should feel informed and confident in your choices. Birth is not only the birth of a child but also the birth of a parent. I will support you in the decisions you make and help create a safe space for your voice to be heard in labor. I am here to support you when things get hard, when you feel insecure, and to guide you through a beautiful birth experience.
In my free time, I enjoy backpacking, gardening, and trying new recipes in my home kitchen.
