Dina MaldonadoI participated in Crossing the Threshold and completed the Heart of Mentoring class. Your Best Birth Doula
I provide birth doula services in and around San Francisco. I am here to support you with information, inspiration and emotional, practical and physical support every step of the way. I whole heartedly believe in supporting every individual and family in whatever choice is right for them as well as doing my best to guide them to ask questions, look inside themselves for answer as well as to seek for help from others and research any issues they encounter. Every person that has given birth deserves to look back at their experience and feel that they were heard, valued and supported throughout the process no matter the outcome. Birth is something that we cannot control however our perspective on things is within our power.
My birth doula package includes 3-4 prenatal visits, I will go on-call for your birth at 38 weeks and offer continuous supporting throughout your labor and birth and a postpartum visit. I am a mother to two girls (aged 3 & 5 years old) and realized my passion for supporting pregnant people upon having my first baby. I have been an RN since 2011 and four months after the birth of my first daughter I took a birth doula training which immersed me into the birth world and I never looked back. I am now in school for Certified Nurse Midwifery and focusing on doula work full time. Being with people during pregnancy, birth and postpartum is truly a privilege and my goal is to have you leave your birth experience feeling empowered and excited to take on your new role as a parent as well as any other role that you may play in life. I also speak fluent Spa
