My Story

My name is Cristina but most people call me Cris. I’m a Queens and Brooklyn girl at heart. My background has been in hospitality, finance and human resources; but several experiences have led me on this path to becoming a doula. From my passion in advocating for others, research, women's rights, and coupled with my own birth experience... I realized the great need that lies in the birthing world. I realized the disparities that exist. The lack of consent. The lack of support, and the flood of fear that exists in what should be one of the most glorious experiences in life. Birthing life. I was trained with Birthday Presence based out of Brooklyn and I’m a DONA certified birth doula. My work is inclusive of ALL sexual orientations, gender identities and cultural practices. As a Latinx birth worker it is imperative that my support is full spectrum and fosters belonging for all. I offer holistic support from preconception planning to pregnancy and beyond. I want you to experience a respectful, equitable, and quality birth regardless of what that may look like. You deserve this. With evidence-based research, techniques, care, attention to detail, and love we can achieve this and so much more.

In the link below, I share a little bit about the value of doula and why becoming one was so important for me. 

The Mission

To empower, educate, and support ALL birthing persons to experience a safe, satisfying and evidence-based birth experience. This means equipping every individual with the tools they need to make informed choices over their options and care. We strive to make a positive impact on the maternal health crisis here in the U.S. along with fostering community in the postpartum period. 


I've joined a remarkable collective of doulas over at Sistahood of Birthworkers. Together we've answered the call to support, protect and serve marginalized birthing bodies. We do this only through community and helping hands. If you or someone you know cannot afford a doula, reach out. If you need more evidence on why doula support is critical for our BIPOC communities, reach out. The transformation into parenthood is not something we do alone. We do it together. And in this sweet place we thrive. Drop me a line, send me any questions. You are not alone.
