HISTORY & MISSION
I believe that by being a Doula, I can help inform women about pregnancy and labor, reduce the fear of birth and allow women to have power over their own choices! With that vision in mind, I established Divine Lotus Doula Services (DLDS) in 2016, helping women across Western New York find their voice, dignity, power and respect over their body and their baby's life.
I support births in all settings, from hospital to home births and Birthing Centers. I work with families from all different backgrounds, religions and faiths. I feel it is important for all women and their families to be treated with equally and with integrity. Every woman who wants a Doula should have a Doula but more importantly every woman who needs a Doula should have one regardless of income or socioeconomic status.
In 2019, I became one of the doulas participating in the NYS Doula Pilot Program providing care to Medicaid recipients. This pilot program helps by providing covered doula services through Medicaid. In 2019, I also linked up with Jennifer Lombardo from Buffalo Doula Services and work as one of the Doulas of Buffalo Doula Services.
