Anita is a wife, and mother of 4 handsome boys. She fell in love with birth 15+ years ago. Before even knowing that being a Doula was a profession, she was naturally supporting friends, loved ones, and even a few friends of friends in the role of a doula. She became the go-to gal when women were pregnant back in her hometown. It was later, after relocating to Texas, she realized that she could formally train. She received her Birth Doula training through Childbirth International, and gained even more knowledge to assist mothers with. She has served mothers that have birthed 18 babies (not a typo); to first-time moms. She is currently pursing her studies to become a midwife through Ancient Arts Midwifery Institute, and is currently completing her apprenticeship under Sandra Tallbear. Anita also provides lactation support and education alongside her doula services. She has real life experience, having nursed all 4 of her boys, along with lactation counselor training through Childbirth International to help her with assisting mothers. Whether they need a little or a lot of assistance figuring things out. Last, but not least, she believes in both the power of prayer and chocolate….tons of each!
