Certified Birthing from Within Doula Circle of Joy Birth Services
Service Area Offering birth and postpartum Doula services in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. SAN JOSE Work Phone: (415) 871-1135 Website:


My role as a birth doula is to create a safe space and empower all birthing persons to have a positive birth experience. I work as a team with the birthing person, partner and caregivers. I support your choices and listen to your desires. During our prenatal visits, I can help you create your birthplan, and set up important support systems prior to the birth of your baby. Some areas that you may like to focus on for building up support are: Wellness, exercise, nutritional support, community support and mom’s groups, lactation/feeding support, meditation and spiritual practice.

As a postpartum doula I provide non-judgmental guidance and evidence based support around newborn developmental stages, recovery from birth and the journey into parenting. I can be a resource for you with a network of referrals, or a helping hand as you adjust and create new support systems during this special time. You deserve to be supported through this journey!
