Hello! I am Angela Diaz de Leon, and mama to Maya and Remy. I am a DONA trained Birth Doula and CBWS Certified Babywearing Educator. After giving birth to my daughter Maya, I felt so empowered as a woman and new mom, but overwhelmed at the same time. I had lost two pregnancies before she was born, and one after her birth also, which came with it's own set of emotions as a new mama. Holding this new amazing life in my arms, made me realize the important role in guiding this little one to adulthood. There were so many books, websites, apps, and people giving advice that I felt I had to read everything to then decide what route to take as a parent. As much as I love to research and read about every topic, I found that the loudest voice was my own. It was my instinct as a parent. Even as a new mama, I felt that the relationship between my daughter and I, and eventually my son and I, always felt the most connected, warm, and sincere when I trusted my instincts. My hope is to help families trust their instincts, and feel empowered to bond with their child before, during and after birth.
As your birth Doula, I will provide emotional support, physical comfort measures, and help you get the information you need to make an informed decision about your birth choices. You and your baby will remember this day for a lifetime. My goal is to help you and your partner plan for a shorter labor, fewer complications, and a healthy baby.
I have been a part of a growing community of people who carry (wear) their children in carriers since 2012. At times you may want to hold your child close to bond with them, or perhaps have a tool to help in the day to day activities, I can help. I share how to find and use the carrier you and baby will be comfortable in. I offer one on one or small group consultations.
Many women believe that ingesting their placenta replenishes the nutrients it contained. There is also the belief that it can help prevent postpartum depression and increase milk supply among other things. I offer a wide range of options so you can choose how you prefer to make your placenta a part of your healing once baby is born.
