Specialty: birth, postpartum, Portuguese speaking

Glenda (she/her) believes in birthing people as the protagonists of their own lives. She believes in and trusts the human body and in the art of giving birth.

Glenda is the mother of two beautiful kids, one 7 year old and one 9 month old. After her second delivery, she saw the opportunity to help other birthing people and families though the process of childbirth and postpartum.

The decision to become a doula came with the wish to empower and show all parents what they are able to do. She believes you just need to trust and believe in yourself. When we are raising a child, we are also generating ourselves as new people. Strong support is required around this process, which, although natural, can also be arduous.

Glenda’s mission is to make your experience as a pregnant person humanized and respected. She also wants to show that you are not alone. We are all paddling in the same boat.
