Scholastically I began my studies at the University of California, Irvine, where I received a Bachelors of Arts in Sociology and Political Science. I continued my studies at California State University, Long Beach and received a Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN). I worked as a registered nurse (RN) in Labor and Delivery at a high risk hospital in Los Angeles County. I am trilingual, speaking English, (Brazilian) Portuguese and Spanish. My family is from Brazil and I am the first American descendent.
I am a mother of two, who have changed my life in every way. They have made me question every step I take as an individual and I appreciate how they've impacted my life. I truly feel that with their first breath I not only became a mother, but truly matured into the adult I am today.
This company began in hopes to properly educate parents on the realities of parenthood. It is our belief that pregnancy and parenthood has become extremely glamorized and has not focused on the changes it brings upon the family dynamic. Having a child is an incredible experience and many couples prepare themselves for this beautiful moment revolving around the birth, however, those seeking our services express that they felt thrown into the actual lifestyle that parenthood brought upon them. We truly believe parents should be educated not only with the birthing experience, but with what will follow next. In addition to being a registered nurse, I have become certified as a birth & postpartum doula, as well as a trained CPR instructor.
We serve the Orange County area and look forward to meeting and assisting you in welcoming your child into the family.
