Melissa Duenas: Certified Birth Doula, Certified Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor, Certified Childbirth Education,

HypnoBirthing Instructor, Neonatal Resuscitation Certified, Midwifery Assistant, Reiki Practitioner,

and doula trainer for Embodied Doula Trainings

Through love, logic, education, advocation and a little bit of trust in the universe, I help clients achieve powerful birth experiences that will impact them for years to come. I don't believe in a healthy baby being the only end goal, but a mentally well and supported parent being my top priority.

I am an indigenous woman who brings a bit of my culture into all of the things that I do. I have 2 biological sons who are 6 and 8 years old. They keep me on my toes for sure. I enjoy traveling, food experiences, hosting friends and family, as well as being active and giving back to our local community.  I am passionate about supporting other womxn owned businesses.

 

I have attended over 400 births in home, hospitals and birth centers. I have attended 94 VBAC's, including VBA2C & VBA3C with 90% of those resulting in vaginal births. I have supported 44 families welcome their twins vaginally, and 93% of my clients have achieved the types of births they set out to achieve. I have a background in psychology and a passion working with those who have a history in anxiety or are facing high risk pregnancies and might need extra emotional support. Feel free to poke around and contact me with any questions you might have.
