Tlazolteotl is the spirit who eats filth, cleanses the soul, and purifies. A
common image of Tlazolteotl is when she is squatting in a birth-giving

What is a Doula?

As a birth doula, I accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and
satisfying birth experience. I completed my training with DONA International. I
draw on my professional training, knowledge and experience to provide you
with advocacy, emotional, informational, physical, and partner support. I am
independent and self-employed. As your doula, I am working for you, not
your caregiver or hospital. I am a birth and postpartum doula and I provide my
services throughout Queens, Long Island, Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and
in parts of New Jersey and Connecticut. I look forward to supporting you in
the transition to parenthood.
