A GENTLE TRANSITION TO MOTHERHOOD
Une periode postnatal en douceur.
Who I Am
I'm Diana, born and raised in France, now settling in San Diego with my husband Weston and my daughter Olivia who is 3 years old. I was a Birth Doula, but after giving birth naturally to my daughter in New Zealand and struggling with postpartum depression, I decided to become certified as a Postpartum Doula with Best Doula School and support new parents in this transition to parenthood.
I nurture and guide families in the postnatal period, during which a new mother is born. Having a warm and caring support system you can count on during this transition to parenthood is crucial to your physical, emotional and spiritual recovery from childbirth. While feeding, changing diapers and developing emotional attachment with your baby are important; being nurtured with warmth, rest and nutritious meals are essential in this passage to motherhood.
I support French and American families in San Diego, CA area. If you are looking for a nurturing, calm, natural care focused postpartum Doula, I am the person you're looking for.

"It was amazing to have the support from Diana leading up to my birth and during the birth. She had great advice for myself and my partner was non judgmental and definitely helped me to be more relaxed. I was so grateful for her presence and would highly recommend. Thank you"

"I birthed my first daughter at home with the support of Diana as my doula, she had such an impact on my birth experience. My labor was very long and looking back I am not sure I would have been able to stay home and fulfill my dream birth scenario without her support. She helped me stay active to keep things moving, and helped me feel confident and in control of my birth. She is very knowledgeable and has very comforting communication. I couldn't recommend her services more! Thank you for helping me achieve an inspiring and empowering birth."
